Euro top performing G-10 currency, pound shows resilience

The following bar chart signals the performance of G-1o currencies, so far, this year, based on their movements versus the U.S. dollar.

The euro remained in the first place with 12.7 percent advance since the beginning of the year, owing to the outstanding economic performance from the euro area.

Despite Brexit uncertainty and lack of progress between the U.K. and EU, the pound showed resilience, where a 9.6 percent rise this year lift it to the third spot.

On the other end, the New Zealand dollar has reported a 1.1 percent decline, largely due to the recent election.
