Bernanke, who in February will mark five years in the position, will deliver his “Conversation on the Economy” at the Fisher College of Business at 8:00 P.M., GMT.

As head of the central bank, which sets the policy on short-term interest rates, Bernanke’s speeches are always scrutinized by FX traders searching for clues.

Should he hint at future policies in the Columbus speech, speculation could then have some short-term impact on USD currency market trading.
