The euro traded higher against the U.S. dollar despite the disappointing economic data from Germany and France. German factory orders declined 2.8% in March from an increase of 0.9% in February. February’s figure was revised up from 0.6%. Analysts had forecasted a 0.5% rise. French industrial production decreased 0.7% in March from an increase of 0.1% in February. Analysts had expected a 0.4% increase.

The Swiss franc traded mixed against the U.S. dollar. Market participants remained unimpressed by the rise of the central bank’s foreign currency reserves. The Swiss National Bank (SNB) had released that the foreign currency reserves climbed to 438.9 billion Swiss francs in April from 437.9 billion Swiss francs in March. This figure shows the SNB had not bought euros to defend EUR/CHF 1.20 exchange rate floor.

The British pound increased to 9-week highs against the euro. The sterling was supported by speculation the Bank of England will hike interest rates due to strong growth of the U.K. economy. The British currency traded lower against the U.S. dollar. No economic data was published in Great Britain.

EUR/USD: the currency pair climbed to $1.3932

GBP/USD: the currency pair declined to $1.6954
