The weekend left some market participants sweating. The notion that traders will have to contend and deal with the aftermath of the ECB’s decision over the weekend was prevalent However, surprise, surprise a twist in the narrative came with attacks to Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil facilities on Saturday less than a fortnight since the new Saudi Energy Minister, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman took office from Khalid Al Falih. Effectively the attacks shifted attention from the ongoing US-China Trade caressing, Brexit Tailgating and the upcoming Fed Interest Rate Decision in which some 96% of market participants expect a 25bais point rate cut.
