Venezuela developments, Brexit new plan, Huawei telecom issues and its aftermaths will be closely watched by the currency markets from a long term perspective. FOMC on Wednesday night will cause volatility only if there is some surprises. Key technical resistances in euro and pound need to be broken for another wave of rise. Yen can trade sideways.

Chinese consumer demand will also be closely watched as China celebrates its New Year next week. Traders will be looking for clues on impact on Chinese demand due to US induced trade war.


Traders will prefer to be on the sidelines till Monday. Global risk and Indian interim budget surprises will be closely watched.
