Potential Catalysts:

1. BOJ statement – On Thursday we’ll see the BOJ publish its monetary policy decision for the month of December. And while no one is expecting policy changes from the central bank, it would be interesting to see if the board will echo Kuroda’s recent statements about possibly contemplating exit strategies in the foreseeable future. Watch this one closely, fellas!

2. End-of-year profit-taking – We’re down to the last trading days of the year and, with holidays around the corner, a lot of market players are likely to take profits and call it a year. I hear the comdolls have been killing it lately. Will the dollar follow suit and lose most of its 2017 gains?
