Trends for Today 02/03/2010

Market Notes:

Reserve Bank of Australia hikes policy rate 0.25 point to 4% as expected.

Yesterday’s strong GDP numbers gave the CAD a lift but markets will be watching the BOC‘s public speaking, bearing in mind currency strength has always been a topic after recent meetings.

The pound grabbed the headlines overnight as it was flattened across the board with a mix of concerns about a possible hung parliament, the BOE meeting on Thurs and talk of a huge M&A deal all combined to pressure the pound.
