XE Market Analysis: Asia – Aug 15, 2019

The Dollar was mostly firmer through the N.Y. session on Thursday, with gains coming on the back of decent U.S. data. Trade angst remains front and center, which has tended to support the USD and JPY this week. EUR-USD faded to two-week lows of 1.1092 before recovering over 1.1115. USD-JPY peaked at 106.34, though later fell into the 105.80 level, as Wall Street turned negative. USD-CAD headed up to 1.3339 as crude prices remain pressured. Cable bucked the trend and rallied to one-week highs of 1.2150 early in the session.
