Greetings one and all

One central bank (BOC) has said its piece and now we wait on the next one (ECB) to unveil their intentions later today 11.45 and 12.30 (GMT)

Data wise it's UK retail sales that are the highlight with US initial jobs claims and existing home sales, and Canadian retails also there to create potential risk

A big day ahead with all eyes focussed on the ECB

As always I wish you a good session
