Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Despite the better-than-expected U.S. Retail Sales report, the Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index is struggling to retain the advance to 11,323 even as St. Louis Fed President James Bullard sees scope to raise the benchmark interest rate at the end of 1Q 2015; will Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) Minutes highlight a greater dissent?
