European Markets    

European markets traded sideways on no important news and very little momentum. The FTSE closed in the red on a stronger dollar that hurt miners, sending the sector sharply lower with all leading stocks deep in the red, while all other major bourses and leading sectors were flat. Vivendi was the only 2% plus mover for the EUSXX50 on a otherwise lackluster trading day.

The dollar index was the power mover in the FX markets Wednesday, climbing higher for the third day in a row and finally out of the woods for the dollar investors as geopolitical and weather issues seem now far away in the mirror. OIL was sharply higher after an IEA report projected that global demand is on the rise. SNB statement at 8:30 am and BOE rate decision at 12 noon are the important news on the agenda Thursday.
