23.08.2017 - "A sense of anticipation can be felt across the financial markets ahead of the Jackson Hole Symposium later this week," said FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga in a Wednesday evening note.

    23.08.2017 - FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga said the threat of Draghi verbally intervening to weaken the currency at Jackson Hole was likely to limit the euro’s upside. “With July’s ECB meeting minutes already revealing concerns over how a resurgent euro is obstructing the central bank’s efforts to hit the 2 percent inflation target, Draghi’s speech on Friday will be in sharp focus,” he added.

      21.08.2017 - "The two stars of the gathering will undoubtedly be Mario Draghi and Janet Yellen," said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM.

          11.08.2017 - Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM, said ahead of the release: Investors need more convincing over the possibility of higher US interest rates this year and this should come in the form of rising inflation. With concerns over stubbornly low inflation weighing heavily on the prospect of another US interest rate increase, the pending US CPI data will be in sharp focus. A soft inflation figure below market consensus, is likely to quell expectations of higher US interest rates, ultimately pressuring the dollar.
