Weekend is just around the corner now, so let’s take a look at the FX Movers and Shakers.
Loonie Dollar jumped against the Yen after noon GMT and the pair has gained a solid 1 and a half percent, which is the day’s biggest move.
Canadian trade deficit narrowed down sharply and Brent rose from recent lows, sending the Loonie Dollar higher.
UK Construction PMI showed a solid increase as index jumped towards the 50 threshold and Sterling is having a generally bullish day.
Australian Dollar is up against most of the rivals and it’s point 55% South of the top advancer.
US Non-Farm employment change disappointed, putting pressure on the Buck, which is followed closely by a couple of majors – Swiss Franc and New Zealand Dollar.
Single currency trades up only from the Japanese Yen, which is currently the most bearish of the 8 majors.
Moving on to longer terms, weekly advancers table has just one pair that has gained more than 4% and it’s Sterling/Yen. Euro/Sterling has meanwhile depreciated the most, standing 1.69% in the red.
Kiwi dollar has had a bullish month against the Yen, gaining 4.7%. Australia/New Zealand has dropped by 2.11% and this slide is matched by Sterling/New Zealand.
