The US Dollar rebounds after a substantial selloff led by the FOMC decision to leave the interest rate unchanged. The Dollar index, which tracks the US currency against major peers, recoiled with support at a 95.00 level on Thursday, adding 0.05% to the 95.36 price in the early Friday session. The S&P500 traded nearly flat, while the industrial index Dow 30 rallied with 0.54%.
Yellen argued against the earlier rate hike pointing out that US economy has a lot more room to grow. Particularly in the labour market, as the workers are returning to work because low unemployment rates make it easier to find a job. The head of FED also noted that the US growth remains manageable with low-interest rates. At the same time, achieving 2% inflation target is harder, if rates are increased too early because the monetary policy would become less accommodative.
