The dollar index traded higher despite the weaker than expected NFP employment numbers however the low unemployment and strength in the US markets turned the dollar higher after an initial move lower. US markets went thru a strong day, carrying EU markets higher and signaling a possible change in the markets trend. Commodities led by Oil moved higher on Iran sanctions worries to close at 3.5 year highs just bellow 70$ per barrel. The strong US markets close will probably send EU and Asian markets to a positive open Monday morning.

There is no important news on the agenda Monday – UK markets are closed for a bank holiday.
