    Data/event heavy week

    The data docket is heavy this week. UK’s employment data and average weekly earnings are due for release on Wednesday. This will be followed by Bank of England (BOE) rate decision, minutes release and Budget statement.

    Meanwhile, Fed’s rate decision on Wednesday could trigger volatility in the FX markets as well. In the meantime, Brexit driven volatility may comeback anytime as the referendum is still two months away.
