Wednesday market participants woke to a thriving market with green registered across all boards except in China where most shares were denoted in Red which is their sign of positivity.

 However, with a very heavy Financial calendar, loaded with economic data for the UK, and US delivery from the demand side as in the Core Consumer Price Index. CPI, HPI, and PPI’s  

Traders are bracing for more downside movement on the GBP as Brexit grips investors with more uncertainties. With a possible delayed twist to next month’s final exit of Britain from the EU with no deal.

The US is also bound to release a throng of economic data similar to the UK’s amid the day’s weekly crude oil inventories report. More Fed talks, the announcement of Q4 earnings reports from some 134 firms, including CEVA, CSCO, DISH, REG, Mostly, from companies in the hospitality, communication and energy sectors will populate the earning due for today.

BOE’s Governor Mark Carney’s speech yesterday did not provide much comfort for traders, in it, nothing extraordinarily, new was put across the table.

Investors will also be paying attention to The International Energy Agency (IEA’s) Monthly Oil Market Report. for an in-depth dose of the things ailing the Oil market. As the OPEC Monthly report left some details out.  Despite a surge in the US oil drilling activities the crisis in Venezuela and sanction on Iran are contributing to the underlining cost of production for some of OPEC and OPEC + members.
