EUR/USD and GBP/USD slide

On Friday, the evergreen buck managed to gain in Asia, with the common currency and the British pound tumbling on worries over Brexit. Additionally, the markets looked for signs Donald Trump might soon point to the next Fed chief.

The currency pair USD/JPY hit 113.26, adding 0.64%, AUD/USD showed 0.7838, declining 0.52%. Besides this, EUR/USD went down 0.34% being worth 1.1812, GBP/USD relieved 0.36% trading at 1.3112.

As for the US dollar index, traditionally gauging the American currency’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six rivals, it leapt 0.35% trading at 93.34.

As reports suggest, UK Prime Minister Theresa May is actually foundering in negotiations with EU leaders as well as her own party in shaping Britain’s exit from the EU, although she was backed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Overnight, the evergreen buck sank abruptly, contributing to earlier losses, reacting to a sag in bond yields after a report hinted that Fed Governor Jerome Powell is actually leading the race to become next Fed Chair after Janet Yellen.
