Personal opinions today
The US President said that trade talks with China are progressing well last night and purpose signed an agreement at the end of April. The news boosts the US Dow. Before the announcement of the interest rate decision, investors will be cautious. The Dow fell 26 points to close market.
 
The House of Commons of the British Parliament will vote again on the newly revised draft of the Brexit submitted by Prime Minister, if the new draft is the same as last week, the opposition members will veto the draft again. The British Prime Minister must submit to the EU to postponed the deadline with the relevant reasons.

The trend of the British pound is similar to that of the previous day. It temporarily stabilized above 1.32, but was subject to 1.33 resistance. If the Brexit draft is vetoed tomorrow, and the EU does not accept the UK's postponement of Brexit, the UK may be forced to leave the European Union in the original deadline, which will increase the chance of the pound falling.
 
Today, the UK announced the February consumer price index and retail price index. The market expects a sharp increase from last month, which is expected to be 0.5% and 0.7% respectively.

Keep in mind that the Fed monetary policy decisions tomorrow, and the interest rate is expected to remain unchanged. However, the monetary policy orientation is the focus of the market. In addition, it will be announced that the cessation of the debt reduction schedule is also one of the key points. If the policy and the downsizing schedule remain the same, the dollar will have a chance to rebound.
