USD

The dollar index, which measures the performance of the United States dollar against a basket of the world's major currencies, fell further to a four-week low of 91.53 as Treasury yields remained under pressure. The 30-year US bond auction sent a message of improving appetite to the US debt market, which weighed on yields. The Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell had nothing new to say at the Economic Club of Washington. He reiterated that the economic activity is rebounding significantly, but the Federal Reserve will remain at the current policy stance until achieving the needed goals. Market participants are looking forward to a series of US economic indicators later today among them US jobless claims and Retail Sales.
