14 January, 2013

US dollar weakened vs. its counterparts after Chicago FRB President Charles Evans said the central bank should keep policy accommodative to support the economy. The Fed’s Chairman will speak today at 21:00 GMT – this speech may clarify the central bank's monetary easing prospects.

This time yen fell on the prospects that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will select a central bank chief who will expand monetary easing efforts to accelerate decline of the national currency.
