The dollar fell sharply against most major currencies , which in the first place was due to the refusal of the former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers to participate in the race for the post of chairman of the Federal Reserve System. In a letter to Barack Obama , he wrote that "I have reluctantly decided that any process of approval and adoption of my candidacy will be in a very difficult and acrimonious atmosphere that is not in the interest of the Fed ." Obama issued a statement the former head of the Ministry of Finance . Note also that the appointment of Summers argued by some influential Democrats . Experts pointed out that for Summers were most likely to change as the head of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke , whose mandate expires in January 2014. Now that Summers out of the race for the post of head of the Fed , the focus is now aimed at Janet Yellen , the current Deputy Chairman of the Federal Reserve as the main candidate for a seat Bernanke. If the appointment is approved Yellen , the markets seem to lay in the prices of a clear continuation of the current policy regime Bernanke , suggesting a less aggressive approach to the " rapid narrowing ."

We also add that there is to assess the dynamics of the euro against the dollar , we can see that a small influence on the bidding had Draghi speech and data for the euro area . European Central Bank President Mario Draghi reiterated benchmark for future policy ECB interest rates remain at current or lower levels for an extended period, as the economy is still fragile. Speaking at a conference organized by the European business lobbyists , Draghi urged eurozone countries to stimulate economic growth , employment and competitiveness in a region where economic recovery is still at an early stage. According to Draghi , a program of bond purchases in the secondary markets to improve market conditions helped to restore the normal functioning of markets and eliminated the uncertainty that has paralyzed the economy of some countries.

Value of the pound rose sharply against the dollar, also responding to the gathering of the race of the candidates for the post of head of the Fed . Meanwhile, we add that the course of trade is also affected by information from Rightmove.
