Highlight before Non-farm USD

FX:EURUSD   Euro / U.S. Dollar
Jay Powell was named by President Donald Trump as his nominee to serve as the next chair of the Federal Reserve as no surprise, he moved to make his mark on the world’s most powerful central bank . The news ends months of speculation ahead of the end of Janet Yellen’s first term as chair in February. The post of Fed chair is subject to Senate confirmation

US financial markets remained unchanged on the news, after equity markets struggled for traction earlier in the day as investors parsed details of the sweeping tax reform bill.

The greenback had slipped on Thursday after Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives released proposals to overhaul the tax code.

Republicans called for slashing the corporate tax rate to 20 percent from 35 percent, cutting tax rates on companies’ foreign profits and on individuals and families. Congressional passage of the legislation, however, was far from certain.

While the contents of the tax reforms seem positive for the dollar, there is still uncertainty over how quickly it can be implemented.

At the conclusion of its policy meeting on Wednesday, the Fed left interest rates unchanged, as expected, but further added to expectations for a December rate hike by highlighting "solid" economic growth and a strengthening labor market.

The dollar held steady versus a basket of currencies on Friday, as focus shifted to U.S. jobs data.
