30 Oct: Steady as she goes ahead of the FOMC, due late Wednesday. Australian CPI ahead. UK election; Dec 12th!

Tuesday has been pretty quiet as traders wait on the FOMC, due later today. Stocks and commodities are flat while in the FX markets the EU currencies have been choppy but without doing a great deal.

The US$ looks mostly firmer on the charts heading into the new week and appears set to make headway against the EU majors and the commodity currencies although the Jpy still seems fairly rangebound.
