Speculation about the next Fed Chair is mounting. The current head of the central bank, Janet Yellen, is probably not going to continue, but she is also a candidate. The person will have a huge impact on the US dollar. Here is the assessment from Nomura.

Here is their view, courtesy of eFXnews:

Nomura Research assigns probabilities to the  current short list of Fed candidates: Kevin Warsh, Jerome Powell,  Janet Yellen, and  Gary Cohn:

Warsh:  40%

Powell: 20%

Yellen  20%  

Cohn: 10%

Other:  10%  

”  While we expect the White House to formally announce the Fed Chair nominee in the coming weeks, there is some risk a decision could come later in November,” Nomura argues.
