The dollar index traded higher reversing as positive sentiment sent global equity markets higher and the ECB press conference dovish outcome sent the EURUSD lower to three month highs for the greenback versus the Euro. Most global equity markets traded higher on relief US rates and better than expected earnings while metals continue to slide as Gold stands now at 1318$ per ounce and Silver is down five percent this week alone. OIL traded in narrow ranges to close under 68$ per barrel.

UK GDP at 9:30 am and US GDP at 1:30 pm are the important news on the agenda Friday.
