Potential Catalysts:

1. Tax talk – Word around the hood is that your favorite President will be meeting with Senate Republicans to discuss their tax plan. In addition, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin is scheduled to give a speech tomorrow where he’ll likely talk more about the subject. Think these events will fire up dollar bulls across the board?

2. Central banker speeches – One look at my forex calendar tells me that we’ll hear from BOC’s Poloz, BOE’s Carney, RBNZ’s Spencer, and a number of FOMC members including Yellen and incoming Fed head Powell. Who’s perky about the economy and who are iffy about the “temporariness” of low inflation? Let’s see if we can piece the puzzle together!
