Don't like Fedtalk, you're in luck

The Fed blackout doesn't officially start until tomorrow but after Harker's speech, there is nothing on the agenda.

In case you missed it, a big reason the US dollar is on the fritz today is that Dudley spoke in Asia and didn't repeat his expectation for another rate hike this year. He did, however, repeat that he continues to expect monetary policy to tighten gradually.
