Trans-Atlantic Currencies Index


Source: Yahoo Finance and own calculations. Exchange rates are inverted to be USD per local currency (i.e., an increase indicates a stronger domestic currency) and then indexed to be 100 at the start of the period.


For the week of July 1st to July 5th, we observed the Trans-Atlantic currencies to see any changes in their exchange rates. Starting with the British pound (green), there were no notable increases or decreases until about halfway through the week when it saw a spike and trended upwards to about a 1.27% increase by the end of the week. The Euro (blue) also ended with a significant change, sitting at around a 1.09% increase. The Canadian dollar (red) fluctuated throughout the week but ended at around a 0.38% increase. Finally, the Swiss franc (maroon) was the only currency to drop and stay below the 0% reference line for most of the week, but it also ended up climbing to about a 0.38% increase by the end of the week.
