On the occasion of his intervention at Jackson Hole, Janet Yellen has simply chosen not to talk about monetary policy and economics.
Indeed, while the markets were waiting for comments on the state of the US economy, and potentially on the future monetary policy of the Fed, Yellen for its part, has decided otherwise.
The Chair of the Fed is kept to the topic of the day, and talked about financial stability and regulation.
Those who were hoping for message, optimistic and hawkish are so disappointed today, which is weighing on the Dollar today on the Forex.
EUR/USD rises above 1.1850, USD/JPY is retreating after having once again found resistance on the 109.70/80 and GBP/USD returns above the 1.2850.
The markets will now turn to the speech of Draghi, which will be held at 19h.
