DOLLAR: After a quiet session yesterday, it has been another quiet overnight
session for the dollar, with the DXY trading inside yesterday's range and
finding support once again at the 61.8% retracement of 95.029-96.676.
- It is another quiet data day with the highlight of the US calendar the
Conference Board consumer confidence print at 1500GMT and the focus remains on
tomorrow's Fed statement. After a number of dovish speeches recently, the focus
will be on whether "patient" is added to the statement as well as the outlook
for the balance sheet.
- The government is temporarily back to work following the shutdown but it has
been confirmed that GDP, personal income and trade data will all be delayed
while the productivity data due next week will be a largely pared down release.
- Trade talks between the US and China continue and there will also be focus on
the Huawei CFO's extradition proceedings with Meng due to appear in court in
Canada today.
- Elsewhere earnings, including Apple, will be closely watched today and there
is potential for tonight's Brexit vote to spillover into broader risk sentiment.
