Across the Atlantic today the FOMC Meeting Minutes will be the most anticipated news of the day. Before that is published though, we have to get through the MBA Mortgage Applications, a couple of FED member speeches (Dudley & George) and the JOLTS Job Openings figures for August. EURUSD trading at 1.1046 at time of writing. For the rest of the week we will look towards the Retail Sales figures from September and FED Chair Yellen's speech this coming Friday out of the US.

I hope you all have a nice day.
