The Greenback Bounces; Forex Weekly Outlook: September 28 - October 2

The US dollar (USD) gained against other major currencies on Friday following United States Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen’s speech expressing her expectations of a rate hike still likely to transpire before the year ends.

On Thursday, Yellen indicated that the Fed policymakers are still looking forward to raise rates for the first time in nine years this 2015.

The USD will most likely benefit from higher interest rates as it will become more appealing to yield-seeking investors.


The gain was also supported by a US data showing that the world’s largest economy had a faster growth rate than expected. According to the Commerce Department, the US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the second quarter bolstered 3.90 percent, greater than the 3.70 percent initial estimate.

Furthermore, consumer spending, which holds for more than 66 percent of the nation’s economic activity, also noted a remarkable boost of 3.60 percent, up from the August report of 3.10 percent.

JPY Weakens

Meanwhile, in Asia, the Japanese yen (JPY) began Monday’s session a little weaker as investors await the speech of Bank of Japan (BOJ) Governor Haruhiko Kuroda.

USD/JPY was up 0.07 percent, trading at 120.58.

Kuroda is to address a speech to business leaders in Osaka at 0530 GMT.

The US dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, declined 0.03 percent at 96.33.
