US markets may be on holiday but we have some potential action to look forward to later 16 Jan

Bank of England governor Mark Carney will make a scheduled speech to the London School of Economics at 18.30 GMT

The text will be released on the BOE website as he steps up the rostrum so be prepared for a flurry of headlines.

Carney's not the only GBP-game in town though and we can expect continued volatility into tomorrow morning's highly anticipated speech from UK PM May. There is no specified time being given as yet but popular consensus seems to be 11.00-12.00 GMT

I'm heading out of here now. I hope our US readers have an enjoyable day off and I'll see you all back here tomorrow.

It's going to be a little thin out there in FX land today so remember:
