The dollar index traded mostly sideways with very little markets moving news on the agenda other than UK CPI. Most FX majors traded flat and global equity markets followed with a positive session in the EU markets while US markets traded sideways, lacking leadership either way. OIL inventories fell unexpectedly by 3.2 million barrel last week, sending Oil higher by a percent to close above 67.5$ per barrel, off one month lows. Metals traded sideways with Gold closing at the 1225$ per ounce level, now at 8 month lows.

UK Retail Sales at 9:30 am is the important news on the agenda Thursday.
