"There are now few participants, if any, that expect the Fed to reduce its long-term asset purchases now or even next month", says the BBH analyst team. "Many see September as a more likely time frame and a recent poll found the median expectation for tapering to take place in October".

In the FX space, EUR/USD and GBP/USD saw an early dip, but managed to trim losses throughout the European session to currently trade around 1.3340 and 1.5700 respectively. However, USD/JPY remains under pressure, hovering barely above 94.00, while the greenback consolidates slim gains versus the AUD and the CAD – the most vulnerable currencies to the uncertain environment.
