The Japanese yen is weakening against most of its currency rivals on Thursday after a mix of economic data that highlighted both gains and weaknesses in the world’s third-largest economy. Is the federal government’s stimulus enough to prevent Tokyo from slipping into the long-awaited recession?

US Dollar Sinks As Phase One US-China Trade Deal Signed

The US dollar slumped midweek as the US and China officially signed the first phase of a comprehensive trade agreement.

Pound Falls on Disappointing UK Inflation Report and BoE Comments

The sterling pound today fell to new daily lows against the US dollar following the release of disappointing UK inflation data in the early London session.

Great Britain Pound Falls Despite Positive Inflation Print

Euro Falls Despite Upbeat German IFO and Eurozone CPI Data

The euro today fell against the US dollar in what could only be attributed to technical factors including major resistance levels posed by the 200-day MA.

Chinese Yuan Soars As Trump Tweets ‘Very Close to a Big Deal’

The Chinese yuan is spiking on Thursday after President Donald Trump tweeted that the US and China are “very close to a big deal.” Mirroring the financial markets, the yuan pared its earlier losses and is rallying on the news.
