Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Good Morning Traders.
It is Friday the 22nd of March and here is what to look out for today.

The US dollar rallied against all Group-of-10 currencies save the yen, with attention focused on China’s easing of its control on the yuan, which triggered a decline in the currency and drove down other markets. Friday’s dollar rally extended a weekly gain. US Treasuries climbed on a quieter day for macroeconomic data. US equities are expected to end the week on a positive note after reaching a new all-time high amid ongoing confidence about economic strength and anticipation that monetary easing may begin this year.
