US Political Questions Scuttle Greenback

Questions as to whether President Trump can deliver on his election promises of tax cuts and infrastructure spending have unnerved equity markets.

Tuesday’s USDJPY sell-off in New York extended throughout the entire overnight session, helped by a better than expected Japan Trade report.  View article >

The Pound (GBP) tumbled against the other majors yesterday as Prime Minister Theresa May announced that she would trigger Article 50 next Wednesday.
