The dollar index traded lower ahead of the important NFP numbers today ahead of the US markets open. FX markets traded in narrow ranges on very little volumes yesterday as the markets digest the upcoming trade tariffs and the FOMC meeting minutes did little to clarify that. EU markets traded higher on automakers strength while US markets traded higher led by technology stocks. OIL traded sharply lower following the US China trade disputes to close under 73$ per barrel and metals ticked higher on a weaker dollar. NFP numbers are expected to set the tone for the markets today.

Non Farm Payrolls and CAD Employment change at 1:30 pm are the important news on the agenda Friday.
