Want to trade with proprietary strategies developed by FXCM? Find out how here.

With only one day left until the October FOMC rate decision, the Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index has gained the most on a daily basis in over a month. There was no particular story to account for majority of the move, and traders may just be preparing for the possibility of the Fed hinting at a taper sooner than the median expectation of March 2014.

The US Dollar move higher started shortly after the NY close on Monday, when RBA Governor Stevens said that the Aussie will move materially lower in the future. The comments caused the Australian Dollar to decline against majors like the US Dollar.

The greenback then moved further higher during the European session, despite a lack of market moving news. In the NY session, the US Dollar fell against the Euro temporarily on comments from ECB’s Nowotny, before setting new daily highs.
