The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index has fallen back below 10,600 after briefly setting a new 2-week high earlier in Thursday’s session. The decline below the daily open at 10,589 happened during Fed Chair Yellen’s testimony before the Senate, although the connection was unclear.

The dollar climbed 30 pips higher against the Australian Dollar in the beginning of the Tokyo session, when Australian private capital expenditures disappointed expectations for Q4 with a 5.2% decline. The greenback gains sped up again at the end of the Tokyo session and set a 2-week high at 10,615.

While the dollar index posted a steady unwinding of the session’s gains through the London session, Fed Chair Yellen’s testimony to the Senate was accompanied by an additional 10 point US Dollar decline below the daily open. Yellen did not seriously deviate from her recent comments to the House of Representatives, and she strongly supported the outlook for continued taper of QE, despite pointing out some weather related economic weakness. Therefore, it was unclear exactly why greenback traders decided to sell during the Fed Chief’s testimony.
