US Dollar recovers the smile above 95.00
- USD reverts Monday’s pullback, back near 95.00.
- US 10-year yields bounces off lows near 2.31%.
- Yellen and second-tier data due later today.
The greenback, tracked by the US Dollar Index (DXY), is posting moderate gains on Monday and is currently advancing beyond the critical barrier at 95.00 the figure.
US Dollar looks to Yellen
The index managed to revert yesterday’s pullback after finding dip-buyers in the 94.70 area, coincident at the same time with the 10-day sma.
The current up move has been in tandem with a rebound in yields of the key US 10-year reference, coming up after testing lows in the sub-2.31% zone on Monday.
Despite the ongoing up move, the buck should stay vigilant on the headlines coming from the US political scenario, particularly those regarding the Trump’s tax reform proposal, which is now facing some internal conflicts among Republicans and faces strong opposition from Democrats.
Looking ahead, the IBD/TIPP index is next on tap followed by JOLTs job openings and the speech by Chairwoman J.Yellen.
