US dollar index is trading at 97. 67 , depreciating against the majors after weaker than expected manufacturing and industrial production data was reported yesterday . Comments from FED vice chair person Fischer were mildly hawkish but failed to support the dollar . US reports its inflation data today and this data is unlikely to be market moving . We expect a slow day of trading with the chances of US dollar regaining some ground.
