Greece, Yellen & Draghi Keep Forex Traders On Edge

With a new week beginning the month of February is slowly coming to an end as traders hope that the Greece situation will go away quietly. It looks like the Eurozone will remain together as traders look forward to the kickoff of the ECB stimulus program. At the end of last week a four-month “bridging arrangement” was agreed in Greek debt negotiations. The Greek government must submit a list of economic measures it intends to carry out under the four-month extension and its EU partners must agree that they are adequate enough. This meeting will be the main focus of the markets today. The euro is flat in the morning a trading at 1.1384 as the US dollar gained a few points. Market focus will move to Janet Yellen’s testimony before US lawmakers on Tuesday. This event could cause a good deal of volatility in the markets depending on the attitude and outlook of the Bank decision maker.  The US dollar is trading at 94.44. Yellen’s comments on monetary policy and the state of the US economy follow the release of January’s policymaker meeting minutes which showed that the majority of the Fed’s open market committee’s members are in no rush to increase rates. Most investors continue to position for higher US rates at some point this year.
