Good Morning Traders.
It is Thursday the 14th of December, and here is what to look out for today.

After controlling an inflation surge without a recession or major damage to employment, the Federal Reserve signaled it was considering undoing the sharpest interest rate hikes in a generation next year.

After over a year of raising borrowing costs, all eyes will be on how firmly the European Central Bank responds to wagers on interest rate reduction.
