The strength in USD came after data indicated that the US core personal consumption expenditures price index inched closer towards the central bank target of 2.0%, strengthening the case for the central bank to move ahead with gradual rate hikes in the coming period. The GBP weakened, amid expectations that the recent batch of dismal macroeconomic data might induce the Bank of England to hold its rate hike plans for quite some time. The EUR declined against USD, as weaker than expected German retail sales weighed on the common currency. The JPY weakened against the USD, amid broad based gains in the greenback and as geopolitical tensions continued to ease in the Korean peninsula.
