Data:

08:30 UK  Retail sales (July) Y/Y 0.0%

 

The dollar and yen gained against most major counterparts on speculation a report today will show U.S. inflation isn’t weak enough for the Federal Reserve to consider a third round of so-called quantitative easing.
The U.S. currency strengthened against the Australian and New Zealand dollars as sliding stock markets damped demand for higher-yielding assets. The franc weakened against the euro and dollar on speculation the Swiss National Bank will expand efforts to curb the currency’s strength. 
The pound slid against the dollar after consumer spending figures added to evidence that the U.K. economy is losing momentum.

 

EUR/USD: the pair decreased below  $1.4400.
GBP/USD: the pair decreased below $1.6500.
USD/JPY: the pair holds at  Y76.55-Y76.70.
