March 21, 2018.

The FX and Global Equity markets brace for the FOMC statement later in the afternoon. FX markets saw the dollar stronger across the board Tuesday ahead of the news while commodities turned lower and the only big mover in the markets was OIL, jumping to close above 63$ per barrel on demand concerns and Middle East tensions. EU markets traded in narrow ranges yet managed a positive close while Asian markets did the same in a low volume overnight session.

UK Average Earnings at 9:30 am, OIL inventories at 2:30 pm and the FOMC Statement at 6:00 pm are the important news on the agenda Wednesday.
