Here are the latest developments in global markets: FOREX: The dollar’s index against a basket of six major currencies traded higher by 0.1% after touching its lowest since early July of 93.81 earlier on Friday. Still, the index mostly consolidated yesterday’s considerable losses. Dollar-advancing on Friday was most evident against the yen and sterling. The former, unable to attract safe-haven flows, took a beating lately. Evidently, dollar/yen, euro/yen and pound/yen scaled two-, five- and four-month highs on Friday; the latter [..]

Posted on September 21, 2018 at 7:47 am GMT

Here are the latest developments in global markets: FOREX: The dollar index is higher by a marginal 0.05% on Friday, recouping some of the significant losses it posted in the previous session as risk appetite remained firm and investors pared back more of their safe-haven bets on the US currency. The haven-perceived yen was also on the back foot, performing even worse than the greenback amid this risk-on environment. Meanwhile, the euro and sterling capitalized, both staging a spectacular recovery [..]

Posted on August 30, 2018 at 11:51 am GMT

Here are the latest developments in global markets: FOREX: Pound/dollar stalled yesterday’s rally, trading at 1.3016 (-0.08%) as the EU’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier talked down expectations of a Brexit deal today, saying that the bloc must be prepared for a “disorderly” exit. His comments came a day after he said that the UK could be offered a special partnership “such that has never been with any other country”.
