Traditionalists at the Fed, including Yellen, believe that if policy makers do not tighten pre-emptively in this environment, unemployment will undershoot its natural rate, pushing inflation above target. She indicated no decision has been made on the board's fate as the Fed continued to look into the matter.

USA stock futures traded higher in early pre-market trade. The Canadian dollar was last trading at C$1.2720 to the greenback, up 0.22 percent. The Aussie and Kiwi dollars jetted higher too.

In Asia, Hong Kong's Hang Seng index jumped 1.2 percent after a report showed that Chinese trade growth accelerated for a second month in June.
