Scoreboard: Fear of speech

The US dollar weakened and Wall Street dropped modestly ahead of Ben Bernanke's address to Congress.

Modest falls were the order of the day last night, the S&P500 down 0.4 per cent at the bell (1676), with the Dow off 31 points (15,453) and the Nasdaq off 0.3 per cent (3598). It’s not that there was anything to really spook the markets as such.
