April 24, 2018.

The dollar index traded sharply higher opening the week with a sharp move versus majors on higher interest rates, sending commodities spiraling lower and signaling more troubles for the US stock market. Silver was the big mover on the day, down 3.25% making it the biggest move lower since January. The stronger US dollar made safe heaven irrelevant yesterday as US markets moved lower with commodities, the JPY and CHF combined. Earnings will be back in the front seat for the EU and US markets today.

US Consumer Confidence at 3 pm is the important news on the agenda Tuesday.
