We have a busy day ahead of us today with plenty of releases to keep a close eye on, including a meeting between Merkel and Draghi which could throw up absolutely anything.

Head of the European Central Bank Mario Draghi follows up this meeting with a speech at 2pm and investors eyes and ears will be heavily fixed on any comments that come from this and Euro exchange rates could be extremely volatile during this period.

Canadian Retail Sales data of out this afternoon so those with an interest in Canadian Dollars should be aware and U.S Consumer Confidence is also out this afternoon so Dollar traders need to be on their toes during this period.
