March 9, 2018.

The ECB Press conference delivered a blow to the Euro after ECB President Draghi comments on a contained inflation environment and protectionism risks, sending the single currency sharply lower versus majors. The EU markets reacted with a move higher in line with a weaker Euro and better competitive environment and trading conditions. Most global leading markets reacted positively to the new tariffs scheme proposed by the White House while OIL sold off sharply for the second day in a row on US output concerns. NFP numbers today at noon are the next big decision point awaiting the markets.

UK  Manufacturing Production at 9:30 am, CAD Employment change and NFP at 1:30 pm are the important news on the agenda Friday.
