Dollar mixed ahead of FOMC minutes release

The US data schedule is light today with JOLTs due out this morning and FOMC minutes to be released this afternoon. Investors will pay attention to any signs of tapering of asset purchases and inflation targets following the slightly more hawkish comments last month. The dollar is down versus the Canadian dollar and mixed versus the pound and euro.

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
