U.S. Dollar (USD)

Better-than-expected data? So what? The currency bulls weren't too impressed with the Greenback last Friday as it barely ended the day higher against its counterparts. EUR/USD only slipped by 9 pips while Cable lost 38 pips. What's up with that? Read more...

Euro (EUR)

If I were to pick one letter in the alphabet to describe EUR/USD's price action yesterday, it would be the letter "V." EUR/USD started the day at 1.2945, fell to a fresh 11-day low at 1.2883, and then rallied back up near its open at 1.2936. Read more...

New Zealand Dollar (NZD)

It took a strong, last minute rally in the New York session for NZD/USD to keep its head above water. After dipping to as low as .8157, the Kiwi staged its comeback, forcing the pair to end 9 pips above its opening price at .8223. Read more...

Swiss Franc (CHF)

Looks like someone was struck with the lazy bug! After an entire day of trading, the Swiss franc had moved just 7 pips lower against the dollar and ended the day unchanged against the euro. Read more...
