February 15, 2018.

The dollar index traded sharply lower versus majors and is now trading at 18 month lows versus the Yen. The selloff in the greenback prompted a rally in commodities and metals turned higher with Gold closing above 1350$ per ounce. Most markets reacted to the sharp move lower in the dollar despite the CPI number proving that the counter dollar trend is still in place. OIL traded sharply higher on comments from Saudi Arabia over another production cut deal, a weaker dollar and the global rally in the stock markets, closing above 61$ per barrel.

US PPI at 1:30 pm is the important news on the agenda Thursday.
