February 20, 2018.

The dollar index traded higher opening the week from near four year lows versus the Euro and looking to find buyers over the long Presidents Day weekend. Metals responded with a move lower while most trading was under very low volatility and lower volumes, as expected. European markets closed at their lows and are followed by the Asian counterparts lower ahead of the US open today. With US and China markets closed for holidays most global markets traded lower yet in very narrow ranges and lower participation.

There in no important news on the agenda Tuesday.
