The dollar index traded sideways for most of the trading day, with most FX markets moving sideways. OIL and Gold have been the best movers on the day, OIL was higher ahead of the OPEC meetings later this week and gold was higher on dollar weakness and US tax reforms delays. ECB President Dragi speech at 2 pm is the important news on the agenda Friday.
