Market news:
Asian stocks slid lower on Thursday after the Federal Reserve hinted that it may slow its bond-buying activities or halt the program, sending traders fleeing riskier assets and into safe-havens such as the U.S. Dollar.
The USD has continued to trade firmer against most of the major currencies this morning as risk appetite amongst investors decreased within minutes of the release of the minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) latest monetary policy meeting which revealed that several policymakers favoured varying the pace of quantitative easing (QE). As a result the EUR is down where it was at the start of last month.
European equities are also in the red and continue their way to the downside this morning as risk off sentiment is getting the upper hand.
Today will be a very news heavy day, so keep an eye out on those news releases as they'll definitely going to affect price action.
