Pound rises after Carney comments, dollar remains firm

The Economy is moving closer to rate rise, Carney said.
Carney told MPs that Scotland would need £15bn of reserves as an independent country.

The dollar index is currently hovering around 84.26 after setting a high of 84.40.
While the U.S. lacks fundamentals today, eyed will focus on retail sales for August and jobless claims for the previous week, amid expectations he Fed may raise interest rates sooner than predicted.
