A Wall Street Journal article by Fed watcher Hilsenrath noted that the likelihood that the Fed extends its tapering program next week has been widely discussed. "It has been cited as giving the greenback a lift today, especially against the yen, even though a consensus on this seemed to emerge last week as the new data and official comments encouraged looking past the disappointing December jobs report", said the BBH analyst team.
