The dollar index traded lower Friday living room for commodities to move higher after a tough week for metals. Most global equity markets traded in narrow ranges as investors agenda turned towards earnings and less on geopolitical issues. The sterling weakness busted the FTSE100 to three month highs while the sterling is now at three month lows versus the dollar after breaking over Brexit levels just two weeks ago. More of the same is expected this week as earnings will dominate a light news week agenda.

US Chicago PMI at 2:30 pm is the important news on the agenda Monday.
