US JOLTS job openings fails to impress but Powell awaits

The January US JOLTS job openings data has now been released and it has show a fall to 8.86 million from a revised lower, prior reading of 8.889 million. So this report has missed on expectations, but that has not delivered much in the way of a market reaction in terms of the dollar. That could be due to two things. First it was not that far outside of expectations and second Jerome Powell is due to speak any minute. The dollar certainly is not higher though and it now remains to be seen if the Fed boss will kick it lower again or surprisingly ride to its rescue
