The Greenback surrendered recent gains yesterday as investors take stock ahead of the Jackson Hole Symposium and convergence of Central Bank heads today. Both Fed President Janet Yellen and ECB President Mario Draghi are due to address gathered officials in what investors have dubbed a key directional event. Wednesday’s Fed minutes inferred the U.S Central Bank has shifted toward a hawkish bias and Yellen’s speech is critical in affirming the change in stance. Dipping lower against most major counterparts markets largely ignored stable employment data and strong manufacturing numbers. By all rights the Dollar should have consolidated gains yesterday instead it has served to hone market focus and highlights the importance placed on today’s outcome. A hawkish Yellen tone should see the Greenback rally again gather pace. Euro found some support yesterday bouncing back from 11 month lows on stronger than expected German Private-sector growth and stable manufacturing. EUR/USD opens this morning at 1.3281 as focus turns to Jackson Hole and signs of furthering Central Bank divergence.

Some people want to buy a currency and some people want to sell a currency and there is a gap (or margin) between the price at which you buy and the price at which you sell. ⇒ read article
