    The main events on April 27, 2017

    The main events on April 26, 2017

    The Australian and New Zealand dollars moved lower against their U.S. counterpart on Wednesday, after disappointing inflation data from Australia, although sentiment on the greenback was also vulnerable amid sustained uncertainties surrounding U.S. politics.

    AUD/USD fell 0.28% to 0.7516. NZD/USD dropped 0.50% to trade at 0.6920, the lowest since April 12. The U.S. dollar index was down 0.09% at 98.63. USD/JPY changed hands at 111.24, up 0.14%.

    Gold prices dipped slightly in Asia on Wednesday with no fresh support triggers in regional tensions on the Korean peninsula and caution ahead of tax plan details expected from the U.S. later in the day that if approved by Congress could set the pace for interest rate hikes this year by the Fed.
    Gold eased 0.12% to $1,265.75 a troy ounce.

    Oil prices resumed their downward trend on Wednesday as data showed a rise in U.S. crude inventories and record supplies in the rest of the world cast doubt on OPEC's ability to cut supplies and tighten the market.

    WTI is down 13 cents, or 0.3 percent, at $49.43 per barrel. Brent is trading at $51.99 per barrel, down 11 cents, or 0.2 percent.

    News for Today:
    Canada is to publish figures on retail sales.

    Overnight:
    The Bank of Japan is to announce its benchmark interest rate and publish a policy statement which outlines economic conditions and the factors affecting the monetary policy decision. The announcement is to be followed by a press conference.

    The main events on April 24, 2017

    -The euro soared on Monday in Asia after an expected and welcomed outcome for the elections in France that led to a runoff between centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right leader Marine Le Pen.
    -EUR/USD jumped 1.33% to 1.0871 after hitting five-month highs overnight on the French election outcome with Macron expected to win the election on May 7 after defeated rivals offered him support.

    -Gold prices slumped in Asia on Monday as risk concerns eased after the French election went widely as expected, pitting centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right leader Marine Le Pen in a May 7 runoff. Gold dropped 0.90% to $1,277.35% a troy ounce.
    -Oil prices recovered ground on Monday following last week's big losses, driven by expectations that OPEC will extend a pledge to cut output to cover all of 2017, although a relentless rise in U.S. drilling capped gains.
    -WTI added 26 cents, or 0.5 percent, but were still below the $50 mark pierced on Friday at $49.88 a barrel. Brent rose 30 cents, or 0.6 percent, to $52.26 per barrel.
