U.S. dollar dips from 4 month high

FxPremiere.com – Telegram Daily Forex Signals – The dollar slipped from 4-1/2-month highs to trade little changed on Wednesday after minutes of last month’s Federal Reserve meeting suggested there was no consensus about the timing of a tapering of its asset purchases under the U.S. central bank’s quantitative easing program.

Dollar Up From Five Month Low

A reduction in debt purchases is typically positive for the dollar as it means the Fed will not be flooding the financial system with cash, increasing the greenback’s value.

The minutes also said most participants “judged that the Committee’s standard of ‘substantial further progress’ toward the maximum-employment goal had not yet been met.”

This means that Fed policy would remain accommodative for some time, providing no support for the dollar.

“The focus now shifts to next week’s Jackson Hole Symposium, where traders will closely scrutinize Fed Chairman Powell’s keynote speech for any hints about the timing of a taper announcement,” Weller added, referring to the Fed’s annual economic symposium in Wyoming.

In afternoon trading, the dollar index was little changed at 93.137, sliding from a 4-1/2-month peak of 93.267.

The euro hit a session high versus the dollar after the release of the Fed minutes, rising from its lowest since April 1. It was last flat at $1.1712.
