The strongest and weakest currencies as NA traders enter for the day

April 19, 2017. The GBP is the strongest.  The JPY is the weakest.
The snapshot of the strongest and weakest currencies as NA traders enter for the day, show the GBP is the strongest while the JPY is the weakest.  Yesterday, the GBP was the strongest following the snap election announcement by UK PM Theresa May.  The gains of the GBP vs the other major pairs showed gains of 1.35% to 2.75%.  Today, the GBP is up against all the major currencies once again. However, the % changes have showed a slowing/consolidation of the momentum (the GBPUSD is virtually unchanged and the GBPJPY is the biggest mover at 0.65% – see chart below).
