The US Dollar rallied to a new weekly high over the past session despite ongoing greenback negative stories, like the nomination of Janet Yellen as the new Fed chief and the potential US default.

The Wall Street Journal leaked after the US close that President Obama would nominate Janet Yellen as the new Fed chief, and the US Dollar declined against major pairs, because Yellen is considered the more dovish option among the possible candidates.

However, those declines were quickly erased in the rest of overnight trading. The BoJ released minutes from its meeting saying that it sees the economy improving and inflation rising. USD/JPY rose 50 pips and above 97.00 during the overnight hours.

UK Industrial Production and Manufacturing Production releases severely disappointed expectations and sent the Pound lower against the US Dollar during the European session. The US Dollar continues to trade near 10,520 at the time of this writing.
