The Euro has turned lower while the British Pound has edged higher during otherwise quiet trading conditions through the European trading day on Tuesday. Concerns over the next phase of elections in Germany appear to be lingering on investors’ minds. The US Dollar, on balance, has benefited, with the DXY Index pushing slightly higher for the second day in a row. Outgoing Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen announced that she will leave the Federal Reserve Board of Governors when she passes the Fed Chair baton to Jerome Powell. Elsewhere, the commodity currencies are staging a brief comeback versus the Japanese Yen and the US Dollar as risk appetite has started to rebound globally.

The round of US economic data tomorrow will matter more, however, as the Atlanta Fed will provide an update to its GDPNow Q4’17 US growth forecast after the October US Durable Goods Orders report is released.
