European Markets   

EU markets traded mostly sideways in a choppy trading session that left traders mostly on the sidelines. OPEC meetings and the 5% fall in OIL prices sent the energy sector lower 1.5%. The EUSXX600 closed the day lower 0.06%. All major sectors other than energy closed the trading day flat. G7 meetings are the important news on the agenda Friday.

Forex & Commodities markets

OPEC meetings were the focus for traders Thursday morning and the 9 months output cap extension failed to deliver for OIL bulls. The result was a selling avalanche, sending prices lower 5%. FX markets saw little change yet the AUD and the CAD traded lower in sympathy with OIL prices. G7 meetings are the important news on the agenda Friday.
