Yesterday the pair showed choppy trade and closed at its opening level. The price was pressured by growth in the European stock markets and Fed Chair Janet Yellen testimony before the US Congress.
As was expected, the regulator’s stance on monetary policy tightening remained unchanged and the decision to increase interest rates will depend on the state of the economy. At the same time, Yellen pointed out that economic conditions necessary to continue gradual tightening are still in place.
