April 11, 2018.

The dollar index traded lower for the third day in a row on relief tension and positive news on the looming US China trade war. Global markets reacted with a move higher led by US markets reversal after the weak close Monday afternoon. All majors gained versus the dollar other than the safe heavens, JPY and CHF. OIL was the big winner in the markets yesterday, jumping over 3.5% on rising Middle East tensions and Saudi Arabia push for higher prices ahead of Aramco planed IPO.

UK Manufacturing at 9:30 am, US CPI at 1:30 pm, OIL Inventories at 3:30 pm and FED Meeting minutes at 6 pm are the important news on the agenda Wednesday.
