The dollar was traded at $1.373 to the Euro at 11.30 am on Thursday, while it took Yen 91.03 to buy one dollar. Simultaneously, the Yen had the advantage on the Euro, and was traded at Yen 125.16 to the shared currency.

The pound strengthened over the dollar and Euro following an interest rate cut by thre Bank of England, down to 1.5%.

The Euro was worth 90.18p at closing, while the Pound was worth $1.5177.
