Currency markets

The appreciation of the US dollar continued until March of 2015. Relative to the euro, the dollar registered a net gain of 10.3% in 2015. This was mainly brought about by the divergence in monetary policies. Emerging market currencies generally became weaker relative to the euro. The currencies of commodity producing countries, such as Brazil, South Africa and Russia, were the weakest performers.
