Let’s find out what’s moving and shaking on the FX markets this Thursday.
The biggest mover of the day is the Australian Dollar/Japanese Yen, which has been generally bullish during the session and has gained 1.88% or 148.1 pips.
The Aussie Dollar tops the advancers table as the Brexit has caused the currency to climb to its highest level since early May, with odds favouring the remain camp. The Kiwi dollar is also benefiting from the Brexit, and it sits just point 07% behind. And also gaining from Brexit uncertainty is the Swiss Franc which has gained point 45% against the sterling.
The Brexit’s impact is also spreading to the Loonie Dollar by strengthening Canadian oil prices and pushing the currency near a two-week high, and it has gained point 38% against the pound. And UK citizens have been rushing to buy euros ahead of the EU Referendum, and it has also seen a gain against the sterling of point 32%.
Weaker than expected data for US House Price Index disappointed the market, and the greenback has lost point 37% against the euro. And all the excitement over the Brexit has driven trade away from the safe haven yen, which has lost slightly more than 1% again the Pound-and that is the biggest decliner of the day.
So let’s move on to the long term chart where Sterling/Yen is the top advancer in weekly terms with a gain of 7.19%. Euro/Pound has depreciated 3.07% over the same time period, and that’s the biggest decliner.
Kiwi/US Dollar has gained 7.11% on the monthly chart and Pound/New Zealand Dollar is down 5.32% making it the months most bearish pair.
