Your Cheddar hosts Kristen Scholer and Tim Stenovec discuss the top news of the day. A recent study is blowing the conception that millennials are bad at saving out of the water. Plus, the Federal Reserve has a new Chairman....but they're coming in at a time where the U.S. dollar is at its lowest. All these and more on today's episode of Your Cheddar.

According to a new report, 16% of millennials have $100,000 or more in their savings account. Which proves that millennials may actually know what they're doing with their money. Other findings: 59% feel financially secure, 63% save money and 54% are budgeting.

Plus, Jerome Powell will take over for Janet Yellen as Federal Reserve Chairman in early February. Powell has been a Federal Governor since 2012. However, Powell is stepping into this position as the U.S. dollar is at its weakest point since 2014. The dollar's continuing decline is driven by a growing belief that major central banks outside the U.S. will shift away from their ultra-easy monetary policies this year.
