February 23, 2018.

The dollar index reversed course to trade lower after three positive days on a low volume and very little price action trading day. The CAD was weak across the board on a negative retail sales number while the Yen was stronger across the board as some investors worry about the stake of global markets and use the JPY as safe heaven. EU markets traded sideways most of the trading day while Asian markets were positive overnight on dollar weakness and the positive US markets close.

CAD CPI at 1:30 pm and is the important news on the agenda Friday.
