The dollar index traded mostly higher to close the trading week on a positive note, up versus the Euro in the past seven sessions in a row and trading 7 month highs. Most Global equity markets traded lower on the US China trade fears yet in narrow ranges and with very little market participation. Metals went thru another weak day capped by the stronger dollar while Oil traded in narrow ranges with no major news on the agenda to close the week at 71.5$ per barrel, standing now at three year highs.

There is no important news on the agenda Monday, most EU markets are on a Bank holiday.
