EUR/USD vs. B.Bernanke

According to the research team at BBH, the FOMC statement would be the least relevant release, as the evaluation of the economy would remain pretty much the same. “We expect the Chairman to help investors differentiate between tapering and tightening and to try to drive home the point that current conditions are not sufficient to slow down the long-term asset purchases ($85 bln a month)… The Fed exited QE1 and QE2 too early and needs to avoid making the same mistake for a third time”, concluded the analysts.
