April 13,2018.

The dollar index traded higher in relief of global geopolitical tension and the ease in the trade war rhetoric between the US and China. The greenback gained versus safe heaven plays and moved higher for the first time this week. In contrast, commodities turned sharply lower on a 1.5% drop in Gold and Silver. OIL maintained its year highs despite the relief in tensions while global equity markets traded higher across the board ahead of the opening of earnings season today.

There is no important news on the agenda Friday.
