Waiting Out The Storm

We’re being treated to a veritable laundry list of market moving events today, which for me means to hunker down and wait for less volatile conditions. By the time you read this Mario Draghi will already be delivering his speech which is scheduled for 8:45am Eastern. At 10:00am we get the Bank of Canada’s interest rate decision and just to round things off at 2:00pm it’s Yellen’s turn to deliver this month’s FOMC minutes.
