All four currencies exhibited similar patterns throughout the week with some slight differences. The Swiss franc (maroon) and Euro (blue) remained robust throughout the week, experiencing an increase of about 0.40% for the franc and approximately 0.48% for the Euro. The British pound (green) remained stable relative to the dollar initially, then rose before sharply declining to conclude the week at -0.124%. Lastly, the Canadian dollar (red) dipped below the reference line and remained in negative territory throughout the week, finishing around -0.10%.
