March 12, 2018.

The better than expected NFP numbers sent global markets sharply higher led by the US markets rally on Friday and investors taking the tariffs crisis off the table. The FX markets on the other hand had a mixed response to the news, as strength in the dollar following the news turned into a buying opportunity for majors and most FX markets traded flat following the news. OIL reversed higher on US reduces drilling activity and a better than expected NFP, closing above 62$ per barrel and erasing most of the losses for the week. Global markets are expecting a positive open of the trading week today.

There is no important news on the agenda Monday.
