Updates from the Fed, BoJ and BoE fed Dollar, Yen and Pound volatility respectively this past session. Heading into Thursday's session, the market's focus on monetary policy will amplify the market impact of key Euro-area and US event risk. From the European docket, November PMI figures offer a timely growth update for a central bank vowing to expand its stimulus program until it ends deflation and revives growth.
