Euro Falls As Fed Reassures Markets of Its Less-Dovish Stance

The euro today fell aggressively against the US dollar reversing most of yesterday’s gains after the New York Federal Reserve rushed to clarify dovish comments made by its President John Williams. The EUR/USD currency pair was also pressured by the weak German producer data released earlier today as well as the resurgent greenback.

Swiss Franc Flat As Trade Surplus Balloons in June

The Swiss franc is trading relatively flat against some of its currency rivals on Thursday as some recent economic data are pushing up the safe-haven asset. While not consider the global beacon of exports, Switzerland has enjoyed a significant jump last month, helping it experience the biggest trade surplus in more than two years. With Zurich engaged in terse discussions with the European Union (EU), this could […]

Swiss Franc Opens Higher, Mixed Afterwards

The Swiss franc opened sharply higher against its major rivals today. While it fell from the opening level against some peers, the Swissie gained on others. Domestic macroeconomic data was negative to the currency.

US Dollar Mixed on PPI, Index Slips Below 97

The US dollar is mixed against most currencies at the end of the trading week, driven by the latest inflation numbers. The greenback is also finding direction on expectations that the central bank will cut interest rates at the end of the month, according to signals during this week’s semi-annual testimony in front of Congress and latest Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) minutes.

Euro Rallies on Investor Sentiment, Falls on Weak German Data

The euro today rallied against the US dollar in the Asian session before falling during the European session after the release of weak German data. The EUR/USD currency pair later rallied in the American session following the release of mixed US factory data.

Japanese Yen Strengthens Despite Plenty of Unfavorable Data

The Japanese yen is strengthening against several currencies on Thursday, despite plenty of weak data suggesting that the world’s third-largest economy could be cooling down. The yen might be gaining steam on two things: expectations that the central bank could follow the Federal Reserve’s lead and slash interest rates or breathe a sigh of relief that the US and China have renewed trade talks.

Aussie Firm Despite Domestic & China’s Data

The Australian dollar was firm today despite poor macroeconomic data, both domestic and in China, Australia’s biggest trading partner. The possible reason for the rally was profit-taking after yesterday’s huge slump. The currency fell against some rivals intraday but has erased losses against all of them by now.

Japanese Yen Soft After PPI Falls Unexpectedly

The Japanese yen was soft against all of its major peers today. While investors were still nervous ahead of the testimony of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, giving them incentive to stick to safer currencies, domestic macroeconomic data was unfavorable to the yen.

Euro Rallies on ECB Rumors, Later Falls Against Strong US Dollar

The euro today rallied against the US dollar earlier in the session despite the release of mostly week eurozone data following rumors about a rate cut delay by the European Central Bank. The EUR/USD currency pair rose to its daily highs in the early European session before falling as the US dollar recovered amid a subdued market environment.

Euro Soft as Domestic Data Hurts

The euro was soft today. While the currency managed to gain on the US dollar thanks to the dovish Federal Reserve, unfavorable domestic macroeconomic data prevented the euro from rising against other most-traded rivals.
