April 23, 2018.

The dollar index traded sharply higher Friday on increased interest rates sending the greenback to two week highs versus majors. Commodities markets traded lower on a higher dollar while equity markets where under pressure and close in the red late Friday in the US. US President Trump tweet against the OPEC Cartel sent a message that the recent rally in Oil despite increased production will not go without US government notice. Asian markets traded lower Monday morning yet a flat open is expected for EU and US markets on very little news agenda.

German Flash Manufacturing at 8:30 am is the important news on the agenda Monday.
