April 17, 2018.

The dollar index traded lower as the markets asses the risks following the Syria air strike and the tensions in the Middle East. Most FX markets traded in narrow ranges while commodities moved higher on a weaker dollar. OIL turned lower after five days to the upside on profit taking and a relief in Middle East tension. Global equity markets spent most of the trading day moving sideways on narrow ranges and on low trading volumes.

UK Average Earnings at 9:30 am and US Building Permits at 1:30 pm are the important news on the agenda Tuesday.
