Market Best Performer Worst Performer Comments
Forex EURGBP NZDJPY US Dollar was lower -vs- the majors ahead of the release of the FED minutes. The WHAT, which is that rates will be going higher, is firmly ingrained with traders, the only question remaining is the WHEN.

The price action over the past two sessions in indicative of a market that is preparing itself for a surprise. 
Equity FTSE 100 DAX 30 Gains in energy stocks propelled UK indices higher while a less than expected ZEW print pressured the German index.
Commodity Natural Gas US Crude Oil (WTI) Reports of US inventories continuing to buildup sent crude to 6 year lows.
    A technical analysis indicator used to try and determine the short-term trend of the market. The pivot point is the average of the high, low and closing prices from the previous trading day.
