The U.S. dollar is mixed on Friday. Investor’s appetite for risk rose and safe haven currencies (JPY and CHF) fell while positive China and Brexit news saw the NZD, EUR, GBP and AUD advance against the USD. The Canadian dollar was dragged down in the last trading day of the week after softer than expected retail sales and inflation data.
The U.S. dollar was mixed Friday. The GBP deserves a special mention as positive Brexit rumors pushed it 0.61 percent higher against the USD. The American currency lost momentum as the U.S. non farm payrolls (NFP) headline jobs number disappointed with a 130,000 added positions, instead of the forecasted 188,000.
