March 13, 2018.

The global, FX and commodities markets took a breather Monday after the sharp move higher following NFP and most markets traded sideways with very little price action and lower volumes, as expected on a Monday trading day. The dollar index was flat for the day while Oil pulled back after Fridays 3.2% rally to close under 61$ per barrel. The dollar will be back in focus today with the release of the CPI number before US markets open. 

UK Budget release at 11:30 am and US CPI at 12:20 pm are the important news on the agenda Tuesday.
