The U.S. dollar weakened somewhat during today's speech of the head of U.S. Federal Reserve Dzh.Yellen. The correction stopped, and the index fell to the morning values in the area of 79.15, but the positive trend continues. Major U.S. stock markets opened in different directions. So, DJIA - in positive area, about 0.12%, while the S&P500 - in the red zone, a little more than 0.15%.
Currency pairs again in the outset today. EUR/USD pair is trading at the lower edge of today's range 1.3910-1.3930. GBP/USD moderately reduced in 1.6960 area. Not excluded a deeper correction after yesterday's growth.
