The focus of attention

  • Whilst the world’s central banks are trying to stabilize markets and provide stimulus to support economic growth by mostly issuing dovish assessments, crude oil continues to rally with West Texas crude reaching $59 during early Tuesday trading as OPEC and allies postponed the decision to continue or stop production cuts until June this year.

Expected events. All times GMT.
