Graphic Rewind: USD Erases Losses with BoE Propelled Pound Weakness

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index bounced higher from a 2-day low on the back of BoE driven Pound weakness.

The greenback index declined 23 points over the Tokyo session and set a new 2-day low as London traders were coming online, despite a lack of significant news in Forex markets. Much of the losses were posted against the Australian Dollar.

However, those losses were mostly unwound through London trading, reflecting the 120 pip decline seen in GBP/USD trading on the release of two separate UK economic updates. First, the changed in employment beat expectations for the first quarter, although the rise in weekly earnings disappointed. Then, the BoE said in its Inflation Report that despite an improvement in growth, the interest rate may need to stay low for some time.

Trading then continued in a 10 point range above 10,450 through the New York session.
