It was a relatively quiet session as markets are bracing for the US CPI data that is to come later. Major currencies were largely muted with the dollar marginally lower at the balance. The euro is slightly higher but outside of that, there is no notable movement in the FX space for the time being.
Equities were also tentative alongside bond yields, as traders and investors are all not pre-committing to any moves before we get to the main event later in the day. US futures were a touch higher earlier on but are now trading little changed again but buyers are staying poised for a push higher as noted here.
There isn’t much else to remark on the session really. It’s now over to the US CPI data to provide the next indicative steps for markets this week.
