The dollar traded mostly sideways without a major response following the release of the NFP numbers Friday. A lesser than expected job growth was offset by 50 year lows unemployment numbers and most majors had a zero reaction to the numbers. Global equity markets traded lower for the second day in a row led by the US technology sector while EU markets traded lower ahead of the start of earnings season this week and are all trading now in negative territory for the past 12 months. OIL traded mostly sideways and metals traded higher on a softer dollar, Gold closed above the 1202$ per ounce level.

There is no important news on the agenda Monday.
