Forex Technical Levels & News


Mar.28.2014

Looking to today, the final reading of UK GDP in the fourth quarter might invoke a small reaction in the market. German regional inflation numbers might also have an impact, though European consumer confidence numbers at 10am will probably be a bigger mover. We'll be looking towards month end, quarter end and financial year end flows to start moving the market, even though Mondayis officially the cut-off point. Also of interest, later in the day will be ECB member and Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann speaking after the European close. Following his comments about QE and negative rates being a possibility earlier this week, we'll be trying to get a bit of an insight as to what the ECB might do next week at their monetary policy meeting - because at the moment nobody has a clue!
