With the ECB in action on Thursday, expect increased sensitivity to the numbers as inflation continues to be a major bugbear.

For the Pound
It’s a quiet day ahead on the economic calendar. There are no material stats due out of the UK to provide the Pound with direction.

Across the Pond
It’s a particularly quiet day ahead. There are no material stats due out of the U.S to provide the Dollar and the broader market with direction.
The lack of stats will leave chatter from Capitol Hill and sentiment towards FED monetary policy to provide direction.

For the Loonie
It’s also a particularly quiet day ahead for the Loonie, with no material stats to provide direction.
The lack of stats will leave the Loonie in the hands of crude oil prices and market risk sentiment in the week.
