Bernanke’s testimony is followed by publication of the minutes of the latest Federal Open Market Committee meeting from 1 May. Investors will weigh prospects of a possible earlier-than-anticipated end to the central bank’s ultra expansive monetary policy bias. The FOMC minutes are scheduled for release at 8pm CET.
