Currencies wrap: the best, the worst, the most volatile

The week is over and now it is time to underline how successful it was. Below we gathered the best and the worst performers of the week and the most volatile pairs .

Best-performing currency pairs

Among the best performers, we can mention USD/MXN and USD/CNH. While the first pair has managed to gain around 2000 pips in a week recovering from the losses of September 2018, the USD/CNH showed a solid gain of more than 700 pips. Of course, the weakening of the Chinese yuan is strictly connected with the fears surrounding coronavirus in China.

The worst performers, of course, were the pairs with the JPY as a quote currency. This is due the risk-off sentiment, which traders to invest in the safe-haven assets.  Here we can mention USD/JPY. The pair went down from 110.07 to 109.27 after the previous two weeks of gains.
