March 19, 2018.

The dollar traded in narrow ranges versus majors closing the trading week on a flat note. The JPY was again stronger across the board as investors seek protection fearing escalation in the trade war and looking for safe heavens ahead of the FOMC meeting this coming Wednesday. Oil traded higher to close the week above 62$ per barrel on supply concerns while metals traded lower on a stronger dollar. EU markets traded mostly sideways yet managed a positive close putting German election in the back mirror and awaiting G20 meetings, tariffs issues clarifications and the FOMC later this week.

G20 meeting is the important event on the agenda Monday.
