NEXT WEEK: Looking forward to the next week, there is hardly any on the national front, apart from this UK Budget. But a point to make on the budget is the fact that it is typically more significant for UK stocks compared to FX, although a lot of the details of the budget are inclined to be released months before and thus nullifying the surprise element for markets.
