February 12, 2018.

The dollar index traded higher leading most commodities lower and driving minors sharply lower as the dollar strength was felt across all FX markets. OIL was the big loser on the day, diving another 3.5% and completing a 10% correction from January highs to close below 60$ per barrel on US increasing output fears and investors fearing more downside in the energy sector. Most Global markets are likely to follow the positive US lead higher after a strong close in the US markets Friday and a positive open this morning in the Far East markets.

There is no important news on the agenda Monday.
