U.S. equities drifted lower after data on factory orders added to indications that American economic growth remains sluggish. The USD advanced as attention turned to central banks and the impending release of FOMC minutes at 11am today. Investors will be looking for clues as to the timing of the start of the reduction in the bank's $4.5 trillion balance sheet. Any mention of financial stability concerns, which may force the Fed's hand to continue tightening, will also be important for markets. Yesterday's rocket test by Kim Jong Un's regime has been confirmed as North Korea's first intercontinental ballistic missile, raising the possibility that the country could develop the capability to launch a direct nuclear attack on the U.S. The United Nations Security Council will hold an emergency meeting later today.
