UK pound, Aussie slightly firmer

Business | 22 Jul 2021 11:01 am

The UK pound traded at US$1.3708, recovering from a 5 1/2-month trough of US$1.35725 reached on Tuesday, despite rising Delta variant infections  in Britain and confusion about the lifting of restrictions in England, Reuters reports.

The Aussie changed hands at US$0.7350, from an eight-month low of US$0.72895 the previous day, even with half the Australian population under lockdown.

The euro stood at US$1.1789, rising off Wednesday's 3-1/2-month low of US$1.1752 ahead of a closely watched European Central Bank policy decision later in the global day.
