Fundamental Points

Trump’s press conference was combative and defensive. While he covered Russia’s interference allegation and discussed plans to address ethical questions around separating the presidency from his business dealings. It was certainly not as market friendly as the pro-growth acceptance speech he gave in November.

Meanwhile the volatility could continue on Thursday as US Initial Jobless Claims (JAN 7) will be released at 1:30 PM GMT, followed by the US Monthly Budget Statement (DEC) at 7 PM.

On Friday Fed head Janet Yellen is set to Address Town Hall with Educators first thing at 12 AM GMT.

We could see USD JPY price volatility picking up once more as the US releases their Advance Retail Sales (DEC) as well as PPI numbers at 1:30 PM GMT. Prelim UoM Consumer Sentiment will be released at 3 PM followed by Baker Hughes U.S. Rig Count at 6 PM GMt to end the trading week.
