FED LOCKHART & POWELL SPEECH HIGHLIGHTS - DXY USD

TVC:DXY   U.S. Dollar Currency Index
The $ and Fed funds remains flat on the day (Dec 56%) despite somewhat hawkish comments from Lockhart, and in particular putting November on the table.. though the market realistically has Nov priced fairly at 10% given a hike here wouldnt make much sense vs Dec. Fed Powell on the otherhand was much more neutral, offering little but more uncertainty/ data dependency rhetoric.

Fundamental view for USD remains selling on rallies vs EUR and GBP, US GDP was slightly more firm that expected at 1.4% -- tomorrows UK GDP will be interesting.. a big hit or miss will likely cause some Sterling buying/ selling whilst a EUR CPI/ Emp hit or miss will do the same.
