July 13 2018. The dollar index traded mostly sideways in very narrow ranges while global equity markets took center stage, brushing off the US China trade war worries and trading sharply higher across the board led by technology stocks. Global markets closed higher sending a message that investors are ready for more ahead of the start of the earnings season today. Oil traded sideways and lower after yesterday sharp selloff to close below 70$ per barrel while metals reversed higher on a softer dollar.

There is no important news on the agenda Friday.
