Euro (EUR)

Euro just hit a new low, low, low, low! A new 25-month low against the dollar, that is! Before closing the day with a 64-pip loss at 1.2071, EUR/USD tapped 1.2042, its lowest level in more than two years! Read more…

Australian Dollar (AUD)

And the slump continues! After a brief pause earlier in the day, the Aussie came crashing lower during the New York session as the sell-off continued. AUD/USD closed 27 pips lower to finish at 1.0252. Read more…

Swiss Franc (CHF)
