U.S. Dollar Index Futures Stall Ahead of September Employment Report

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is expected to speak on Wednesday and many investors are watching from the sidelines to gain more clues on Yellen’s dovish or hawkish sentiment surrounding an additional interest rate hike in the fourth quarter.

Yellen’s remarks come ahead of the Labor Department’s September Employment Report which should provide insight for the Fed’s next moves. Additional news creating ambiguity among investors is speculation on who U.S. President Donald Trump is favoring as a candidate for the next Fed Chair position.
