TOP SHOT OF TRADERS (SOUNDBITE) (German) CAPITAL MARKETS STRATEGIST, ODDO SEYDLER BANK, OLIVER ROTH, SAYING: "I find the issue of Holland most interesting, not so much because of the financial markets but because of the media hype. It's quite clear that (Dutch nationalist Geert) Wilders won't lead the government. He will be in the opposition. The right-wing movements in Europe are very interesting and somewhat threatening but in the Netherlands, they definitely won't form a government so financial markets are not interested in the least."

- Story Text: Hours before the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank was expected to announce its rate decision on Wednesday (March 15), trading at Frankfurt stock exchange moved "sideways," according to one capital markets strategist.
Oliver Roth of Oddo Seydler bank said that although financial markets were banking on a rate increase, they were not "one hundred percent sure."
