Charts created by Benjamin Spier using Marketscope 2.0

The US Dollar set a significant 58 point gap between Friday’s close and Monday’s open, following a weekend headline that Lawrence Summers withdrew his bid to take over as Fed Chairman in January. Summers was considered to be the frontrunner against the more-dovish candidate Janet Yellen. Therefore, news that Summers was no longer in the running for the position weakened the US Dollar against the major pairs.

At the very beginning of the North American session on Friday, the US Dollar also declined a bit on a White House denial of a false story that Summers was chosen as President Obama’s nominee, as was explained in the last USD graphic rewind.

Finally, at the beginning of today’s North American session, US Dollar lost a bit more against majors when Empire State Manufacturing was unexpectedly announced at a four month low. The reaction to the release may exemplify the sensitivity to US economic releases in this ‘Septaper’ focused trading environment.
