Yellen does not stop EUR/USD – reaches new highs


Janet Yellen speaks in London. It is her first public appearance since the hawkish hike two weeks ago. Given falling inflation and mixed messages from Fed officials, some were asking: will the Fed really raise rates again?

This is not a prepared speech but rather a conversation. She is speaking on a wide variety of topics: models, banking, etc. There is no direct mention of inflation or the next rate hike at the time of writing.

Nevertheless, EUR/USD continues higher, reaching a new high of 1.1337. From here, the pair is not really going anywhere, just staying around the highs.
