Russian Ruble Slumps on Weak Data, Geopolitical Risk

The Russian ruble is slumping midweek after a few pieces of economic data disappointed investors.

Chinese Yuan Mixed on Poor Economic Data

The Chinese yuan is mixed midweek on poor economic data. But the biggest development for the yuan is that it is nearing the 7 mark against the US dollar.

Canadian Dollar Pares Losses on Energy Prices, Account Deficit

The Canadian dollar is paring its earlier losses against its American counterpart on Thursday, buoyed by rallying energy prices and a smaller current account deficit. The loonie has weakened nearly 1% over the last trading week, mainly because of the bear market in international crude oil markets.

Euro Edges Lower on Jerome Powell Testimony, Rallying US Dollar

Canadian Dollar Climbs Higher As Investors Focus on Data

The Canadian dollar posted mild gains against its American counterpart on Monday as the loonie climbed above 76 cents for the first time in a week. While the loonie will try to find direction from the US dollar, investors will also concentrate on several key economic events this week.

Euro Rallies on Risk-On Sentiment, Later Declines on US Retail Sales

The euro today rallied higher amid calm global financial markets, which encouraged a risk-on mood among investors boosting the single currency. However, the euro gave up some of its gains against the US dollar following the release of mixed US retail sales data in the early American session.

US Dollar Declines Against Major Currencies During Trump’s First Press Briefing

The US dollar declined significantly against other major currencies as the markets reacted negatively to Donald Trump‘s first press briefing as president. The US dollar lost much of the ground it had gained earlier in the day after Trump announced his short-term plans for the USA given that he assumes office in nine days.

Ruble Gains with Crude Oil Prices

Dollar Regains Upper Hand on Expectations of Better News

Euro Falls vs. Dollar, Resilient vs. Other Majors

With debt issues of Greece and quantitative easing from the European Central Bank, the euro had plenty of reasons to drop and it did so against the US dollar. Surprisingly enough, the currency moved sideways against the Great Britain pound and even gained on the Japanese yen.
