The dollar index traded mostly sideways, losing ground versus emerging economies as the markets close the second quarter of 2018 on a flat note. The looming results of US China trade war are on the table for investors to digest yet the equity markets seem to overlook the issue and trade mostly in positive late in the day, suggesting a positive Asian and EU open and trading day today. Oil traded higher to fresh 2018 highs while metals and Gold traded lower to fresh 2018 lows, closing under 1250$ per ounce and dipping under the 1250$ line for the first time in eight months.

UK Current Account at 9:30 am and CAD GDP at 1:30 pm are the important news on the agenda Friday.
