- Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke Speaks
Ready or not it Bernanke time. We and the rest of the financial world have spent the week talking up Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke’s upcoming speech at the Jackson Hole Symposium. We are finally here, and as mentioned on Monday, it been a fairly choppy trading week as many Forex traders are on the sidelines or trimming their trading activities in prelude of the speech. Traders are hoping to hear from the Fed Chairman an update of whether the Fed is ready to apply further monetary stimulus at its upcoming FOMC Meeting. In the Fed’s previous meeting, they hinted to that fact, but doubts have risen of whether they actually will make changes. If Bernanke fails to give much clarity about the matter, we could see a fall in equities and the dollar rally.
