March 1, 2018.

The dollar index traded higher for the second day in a row following Fed Chair Powell testimony, sending global markets lower, to close February on a negative tone after another selloff day in the US markets and weakness in commodities and Oil. Oil inventories showed an increase in US stockpiles sending crude sharply lower, to close below 62$ per barrel. Weakness in the Euro helped EU markets trade lower in very narrow ranges while the Nikkei was sharply lower on a stronger Yen. More to come today as Fed Chair Powell will continue is Senate testimony in the afternoon.

UK manufacturing PMI at 9:30 am, US ISM Manufacturing and FED Chair Powell testimony at the Congress at 3:30 pm are the important news on the agenda Thursday.
