Potential Catalysts:

1. Top-tier U.K. reports – One look at the forex calendar tells us that we’ll see the Treasury’s Autumn forecast statement, BOE’s inflation report hearings, AND the U.K.’s second GDP reading. Lots of potential opportunities for volatility, don’t you think?

2. Euro Zone PMIs – On Thursday we’ll see a bunch of manufacturing and services PMIs from the euro zone. And while they don’t usually cause sustained movements, the relatively light economic calendar could influence sentiment on the euro for a couple of trading sessions.

3. Tax talk – Like in the previous week, investors will be paying close attention to how quickly the Trump administration can come up with a tax reform bill that the Americans (and global market players) would be impressed with.

Would the dollar get support from tax-related updates? Or will other issues distract the government from the real market-moving issue?
