Markets Tense ahead of Delayed Healthcare Vote (news: 24/03/17)

The mounting anticipation ahead of the delayed healthcare vote later today has created an unnatural calm across the financial markets with investors adopting a cautious approach. Asian shares concluded mostly mixed during early trading on Friday amid the subdued trading mood with the loss of appetite for risk limiting gains in Europe. Wall Street could come under pressure with participants on standby ahead of a critical healthcare bill that will assess Trump's administration's ability to push through legislations. While Trump has threatened that without a vote to the healthcare bill he will move on to other agenda's, markets may interpret a potential failure today as something that could create some headwinds for the pending tax reforms and infrastructure spending.

EUR/USD: the price has exited the triangle downwards

The euro closed slightly down after Wednesday's trading. Trader activity was low during the US session as market participants waited on the vote in Congress to dismantle Obamacare. The vote has now been pushed back to Friday after the instigators of the motion failed to enlist the support of the requisite number of congressmen. Before closing, the euro/dollar was hovering around the 1.0783 mark.

EUR/USD: euro could go either way

On Wednesday, trading on the euro closed down and the British pound closed slightly up. There were some fluctuations in both directions on the pairs at 17:40 EET when an act of terrorism was committed in London. A car on Westminster bridge drove onto the pavement, hitting a number of pedestrians as it made its way to the parliament building. 5 people have been confirmed dead, including the assailant, who was shot by police, and another 40 were injured.
