    Key Quotes

    “Still a challenging backdrop, a range of data suggesting Q1 growth will be sub-par while weak March import prices, PPI and CPI all suggest the recent jump in inflation may indeed prove transitory, much as Chair Yellen has said lately”.

    “Safe to assume next week's Fed meeting will build on the aforementioned, the guidance likely to signal a lack of urgency once again and that risks still persist”.
