Top five gainers against the dollar of the 36 most actively traded pairs were the New Zealand dollar, up 7.3 percent, the Brazilian real, up 6 percent, the Indian rupee, up 5.1 percent, the Australian dollar, up 4.7 percent and the British pound, up 4 percent.
The worst performing five currencies, and there were only five, were the Indonesian rupiah, down 5.4 percent, the Canadian dollar, down 2.2 percent, the Argentinean peso, down 2.1 percent, the Japanese yen, down 0.1 percent and the Chinese yuan with a really marginal 0.04 percent drop after being tightly managed by the PBOC as usual.
