Session Recap: Pound tumbles on dovish BoE vote, Euro follows
The dollar trades higher versus most competitors, with sterling losses leading the way on an unexpectedly dovish BOE vote. However, the greenback lost some of its shine after the latest string of US data boosted risk appetite among investors. Still, Wall Street indexes opened nearly flat and commodity currencies remain under pressure. Looking ahead, the minutes of the last FOMC minutes will be published at 19:00GMT although there shouldn’t be anything surprising in there after the statement came in fully as expected.
