lawmaker’s motion that has been tabled gets passed. Very early days, but definitely something to watch out for.
US Retail Sales out tonight, but the market is really waiting on next Thursdays FOMC statement and Federal Funds rate.
Recently Interest rate decisions have been very anticlimactic as they are so widely foreshadowed and the market has
already priced them in. Thursday’s hike however, is only given a 80% chance of happening, so is going to generate some
volatility regardless. As ever, any hints on future hikes will also be closely scrutinized.
