Despite a buildup of anticipation for US event risk, as was mentioned in yesterday’s graphic rewind, the US Dollar is trading for fourth day within a 55 point range. The effect of economic releases has been limited and focus remains on when the Fed will begin to taper.
Most of the volatility seen in the chart above was tough to pin on any particular story, and the brunt of the moves was seen across all four pairs that make up the US Dollar Index.
In the European session, UK CBI sales were reported at 34 for September, beating expectations for 23. The rise in Pound on the data helped continue driving the US Dollar Index lower.
