Morning Juice – Europe Session Prep

Good Morning Traders! This Wednesday we get UK CPI data.

Here is what to expect for the day.


The yen plummeted to its lowest level versus the euro since 2008 on expectations that the Bank of Japan will maintain its monetary policy accommodative even after ending the world’s last negative-interest-rate programme on Tuesday.

Oil has stabilised after a two-day increase as an industry group. Ragged a reduction in US crude stocks, and traders counted down to the Federal Reserve’s interest rate announcement.
