The major re-positioning in the Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index seemed to finish yesterday, when traders might have been adding to US Dollar long positions in preparation for the possibility of a surprise from the comments surrounding today’s FOMC rate decision.

Besides for an initial US Dollar rise in the Tokyo session, and then an initial decline in the London session, the US Dollar hasn’t moved much in today’s trading. At the beginning of the NY session, US ADP Employment Change for October disappointed expectations at 130K. The US Dollar saw a temporary decline to 10,450, before immediately erasing those losses.

US Dollar traders should be weary of possible volatility following today’s FOMC event.
