For the week of May 13th to May 17th, we observed changes in the Trans-Atlantic currencies. In the first few days, there were not many changes to each currency from the previous week. However, starting on May 14th, changes began to occur with all of the currencies. The British pound (green) increased by about 1.30% on May 16th before closing the week at around 1.20%, the largest of the 4 currencies. The Euro (Blue) closed the week with an increase of 0.75%, and the Canadian dollar (orange) ended the week with an increase of around 0.48%. While the Swiss franc (maroon) had a maximum increase of 0.55% on May 16th, by the end of the week it experienced no change from the start of the week, remaining at around 0%.
