The greenback clawed back some of its losses after U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell did not provide a firm timetable for asset tapering to begin beyond hinting that it could begin within 2021.

“The jobs report, due on Friday, will be the next highlight given the focus on the Fed’s asset taper. A strong reading will boost expectations that the Fed will give markets prior notice in September before a formal decision in November,” Daiwa Securities senior strategist Yukio Ishizuki told Reuters.

However, numbers that are lower than expected could delay the notice to November with the formal decision following a month later.
