A quiet one to kick start the new week
Good day, everyone. I hope your weekend went well. Things are a bit quieter as we look towards European trading with major currencies sitting more mixed and little changed for the most part at the moment.
The two key risk events this week are the OPEC+ meeting on Thursday and the US non-farm payrolls release on Friday, so there might be some waiting in the meantime.
The dollar gave back some of its post-Fed gains last week as equities rallied but the tone from Fed speakers will continue to be key in the weeks to come.
US futures are holding steadier near flat levels as we get things underway.
For today, there isn’t much in terms of releases in Europe so things are likely to keep quieter and follow a slower pace in the session ahead.
