Dollar eases slightly ahead of Thursday's inflation report

Markets are quiet in cautious trading ahead of two key events tomorrow: US Inflation and ECB policy decision. Markets will watch to see if inflation is higher than forecast providing impetus for the Fed to begin cutting asset purchases. The ECB meeting is expected to keep rates the same.
