March 20, 2018

The dollar traded lower Monday and most FX markets gear towards a heavy batch of economic news coming in the days ahead for the sterling and dollar. The agreement between the EU and Great Britain on a post Brexit schedule propelled the sterling versus all majors ahead of the UK CPI number today. EU markets traded sharply lower on tech news and a stronger Euro while commodities took advantage of a weaker dollar to move higher. The EURSXX50 turned negative for the last 15 months trading now at Dec 2016 levels.

G20 meetings and GBP CPI at 9:30 am are the important news on the agenda Tuesday.
