The British pound today rallied higher against the US dollar amid optimism that the UK would not crash out of the EU after Boris Johnson toned down his rhetoric.

Chinese Yuan Renews Gains on Market Rally, Positive Data

The Chinese yuan is looking to start another winning streak after the currency suspended its momentum against the US dollar. The yuan has been on a tear in recent months, testing 6.8 against the greenback, primarily due to favorable domestic economic data and a weakening buck. But escalating US-China tensions and the plunge in equities in recent sessions could limit the yuan’s gains – for now.

Turkish Lira Weakens As Investors Weigh Monetary Policy, Poor Economic Data

With a fierce risk appetite and general optimism in the broader financial markets, investors are pouring into the rand.
