Charts created by Benjamin Spier using Marketscope 2.0

The US Dollar saw some significant gains over yesterday’s North American session. The gains seemed to initially be sparked by a better than expected Empire Manufacturing Index, and did not slow for a slightly disappointing US industrial production for August.

However, the greenback may have continued to rise on a headline involving the newer candidate for Fed chief, Donald Kohn. Kohn said that easy monetary policies risk creating financial problems. The statement seemed to place Kohn as the more hawkish alternative to Yellen, after former potential Fed Chief candidate Summers withdrew his bid.

Right before the start of the European session, the US Dollar Index showed a reversal of some of the earlier gains. The declines continued after a brief pause following the release of RBA minutes, which sent AUD/USD lower on comments that there is still room for another rate cut.
