With the USD now picking up pace again, traders will look at today’s US docket in order to keep the sentiment surrounding the buck alive.“US Q1 GDP revision is due out later today, and is expected to remain steady at 2.5%...This is really backward-looking, and will likely have no impact on Fed policymaking… Market still seems to believe that a tapering of QE will be seen this year, possibly at the September meeting. As always, this remains data dependent”, commented the analysts at BBH.
