Greenback goes down as market sentiment fluctuates

On Friday, the evergreen buck went down versus the other key currencies because market participants were still cautious reacting to a terrorist attack in Spain, while American political tensions kept dampening demand for the US currency.

White House Economic Adviser Gary Cohn debunked rumors of his probable departure late Thursday. Nevertheless, ascending opposition to Trump’s positions have powered worries over the administration’s capability to implement its political agenda.

The greenback was suppressed after the minutes of the Fed’s July policy gathering published on Wednesday revealed that members of the key bank are still divided over the necessity to lift interest rates further in 2017.

The Japanese yen and Swiss franc ascended, with USD/JPY tumbling 0.48% hitting 109.05 and with USD/CHF declining 0.25% trading at 0.9607.

The currency pair EUR/USD went up 0.30% being worth 1.1759, drifting away from the previous session’s three-week minimum of 1.1662. Meanwhile, GBP/USD tacked on 0.26% hitting 1.2901.
