The American currency is weakening today against its main competitors: the euro, the pound and the Japanese yen.
Today, Good Friday is celebrated in the USA; therefore, the stock exchanges are closed, and the activity of investors is reduced. However, economic statistics continues to come out. Published today, data from the US construction market were weak and put pressure on the US currency. In March, the number of building permits issued instead of the expected growth of 0.3% decreased by 1.7%. And the volume of new home construction fell by 0.3%, while the market expected growth of 6.5%.
The European currency today is strengthening against the yen and the US dollar, and has mixed dynamics in pair with the pound.
Today, European countries celebrate Good Friday, the exchanges are closed, and market activity is significantly reduced. Strengthening of the euro is technical. The European currency regains part of the positions lost the day before due to the release of weak data on business activity indices in the industry and services of the Eurozone and Germany.
The British currency today is strengthening against the US dollar and the yen, and has mixed dynamics in pair with the euro.
There is also a public holiday in the UK. Investors’ activity in the market is minimal and will recover only next week, when new data on Brexit, the state of the British budget and retail sales are going to be published.
The Japanese currency today is strengthening against the US dollar, but weakening against the euro and the pound.
The focus is on inflation data. In March, the base consumer price index rose from 0.7% to 0.8%, and the CPI – from 0.2% to 0.5%. Inflation growth was driven by a 1.3% increase in gasoline prices, as well as utility bills. At the same time, prices for transport and communications decreased by 0.3%. We also note that today the members of the Japanese government have refuted the opinion expressed by the assistant PM Koichi Hagiuda the day before that the increase in sales tax may be postponed. Chief Secretary of the Cabinet Yosyhide Suga said that the government will raise taxes for the appointed dates. And Finance Minister Taro Aso noted that the increase is necessary for the government to have the resources to ensure financial stability and social security.
The Australian dollar today has mixed dynamics in pairs with its main competitors: the US dollar, the euro, the yen and the pound.
Australia, like the US and European countries, celebrates Good Friday today. The exchanges are closed, and the market activity is reduced. In these conditions, the movement of the Australian currency is technical in nature. Investors are waiting for next week when the data on inflation in Australia will be published.
