According to Jim Langlands from FXcharts “the dollar moved sharply lower today as the markets perceived that despite the US Government passing the bill to lift the debt ceiling, the economic impact of the recent shutdown would keep the Fed from scaling back its stimulus program and that tapering will not now begin until 2014, with President Obama today acknowledging the damage that has been done to the economy. None of this seemed to do too much damage to the equities markets, with the S+P reaching an all time high. The possibility of another debt crisis also came into focus, as the temporary solution to the budget issues does not resolve the longer term problems dividing Republicans and Democrats and as we move forwards, is likely to keep the dollar under pressure.”
