Currency Note US Dollar

Will today’s release make up for yesterday’s slow day in America?

Monday was a very quiet day for the US dollar in terms of data releases. US Federal Reserve member Brainard spoke, with a focus on the Federal Reserve members’ views on a possible interest rate rise; however nothing of note was mentioned.

Today, we see the release of building permits – and this is expected to show a slow decrease on the previous month. Following this, we have Federal Reserve members Dudley and Powell speaking. Eyes will be on Federal Chair Yellen, who also speaks late in the day.
