"EUR trade should be lively over the press conference, with risk of squeezes if Draghi isn't seen as sufficiently dovish. We also have UK Sep retail sales. This has been trending higher since 2008, but has slipped in recent months. Consensus for the ex-auto fuels measure is for a 0.4% m/m and 4.7% y/y rise as low inflation and the strengthening labour market boost spending."
