August’s currency update

It was a so-so week for the euro. The single currency was steady against the US and Canadian dollars and, of course, the Swiss franc. It picked up half a cent against the British pound and two thirds of an Australian cent: both of those currencies had to contend with unsatisfactory economic data. The finalised euro zone purchasing managers' index readings were alright but they failed to match up to the promise of the provisional figures a week earlier.

July’s currency update

Despite the unfolding drama in Ukraine and Gaza it was another relatively uneventful week in the foreign exchange market. The losers were the Canadian and New Zealand dollars, both of which suffered as expectations of interest rate increases were marked down.
