Good Morning Traders!
It is Wednesday 12th of March, today we get the highly anticipated US Inflation print which could give clues whether another hike will be in the pipeline from the Fed, and we also get BoC's Rate decision.
Here are some other things to look out for:
The dollar was little changed this morning as investors awaited US inflation data due later in the day to see if price pressures remained strong enough to warrant further interest rate hikes.
US Treasuries fell, with traders betting that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates by 25 basis points next month.
The Federal Reserve will reveal new details today about how policymakers reached one of their most difficult decisions in years, ignoring bank failures that roiled markets last month to deliver a quarter-point rate hike amid signs of persistent price pressures.
