The Brazilian real dropped 0.2 percent after data showed US retail sales rose in July for the first time in four months, a sign that consumers could drive faster economic growth in the third quarter.

C$ hits 3-month high on central bank hopes  TORONTO: The Canadian dollar touched a three-month peak against its US counterpart on Wednesday, supported by recovering commodity prices and some belief central banks around the world will step in to prop up their economies.

Industrial output in Germany, the euro zone's biggest economy, fell more ...
