The dollar traded higher versus majors yesterday after another move lower in the JPY, now trading at 6-week lows 108.00 versus the dollar and investor expectations for more ECB easing following today’s meetings. The dollar was also busted by US President Trump positive attitude towards the China trade talks, suspending tariffs on $250 billions by two weeks in October. The risk sensitive currencies like the AUD and YUAN were also being supported by the dovish US China trade talks. Global equity markets traded higher across the board led by the technology sector, sending all global markets higher in the US and EU equity markets. Metals traded near the flat line, caped by the stronger dollar and supported by US President Trump tweet for his desire to achieve negative interest rates in the US. Gold prices closed at $1,550 per ounce yesterday. Oil traded sharply lower following the ease in the US Iran sanctions, losing more than 2.5% and closing at $55.92 per barrel, yet being supported by the lowest US crude inventories in nearly a year, at 2% below their 5-year average for September.

The ECB Press Conference and Rate decision at 12:45 pm and US CPI at 1:30 pm are the important news on the agenda Thursday. (all times GMT).
