Daily Currency Market Commentary
Daily currency news provided by OzForex

With no data out of the Eurozone to give direction investors watched as the Euro slid to an 8 month low against the Greenback. Inflationary data out of the US was shown to meet expectations for the month of June and the market watched as the US dollar rallied across the board.

Once again these strong signs from the market are continuing to hint that the US Federal Reserve will be looking to end their bond buying program in the next few months leaving the timeframe for a potential interest rate increase shorter than expected, sometime in 2015.
