What is going on in the world?
Meanwhile, and after a week that marked the worst weekly drop since Julyhe global dollar continues his path of recovery—at least momentarily—and the dollar index keep going up.

Meanwhile, the president of the Booking United States Federal (Fed), Jerome Powell will speak between today and tomorrow, and attention will focus on whether he maintains the more moderate tone he adopted after the central bank’s two-day meeting last week or whether, instead, internal divergences in the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). Comments from other Fed policymakers will also be evaluated for signs on whether they expect new rate increases.
The data from consumer price inflation corresponding to October that will be known next week will be key to determining what can happen to the dollar in the remainder of the month.
