    USD soars on Yellen speech

    Janet Yellen, Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, said that the labor market improvements have improved her confidence on the inflation target. She warned that delaying the lift-off too long creates risks. “Holding the federal funds rate at its current level for too long could also encourage excessive risk-taking and thus undermine financial stability”, said Yellen.

    Greenback rose sharply across the board after the speech was released. But so far, the Swiss franc continues to be the best performer in the currency market.
