I was expecting something quieter last week but it was busy and volatile all week. Stats agencies tend to rush out December releases so they don’t have to release as much between Christmas and New Years.

For Monday, all major western markets are closed but the FX market is open as always.

The lone releases on the calendar are from Japan, which will release November unemployment data.

Merry Christmas.
