    Norges Bank: EURNOK heavily offered after Norges Bank surprises on the hawkish side with significant upgrades to its CPI forecast for 2018 and especially 2019 (1.9% vs. 1.5% previously), raised GDP forecasts for the next couple of years and very minor policy forecast raises as well (2019 forecast raised to 0.74% vs. 0.62% previously). EURNOK is down through the important 9.75 area in reaction, a pivotal level that suggests the highs may be in for now if the pair closes below this level post-ECB today.

    The USA dogma for negotiations is ''take negotiations to the wire'' to squeeze as much bargaining as possible. (We such games every year eg Budgetary negotiations?).
