April 16,2018.

The dollar index traded sideways closing the week on a flat note as investors await the results of the air strike on Syria and more on the trade war and the continuing US President Trump vs James Comey saga. US markets traded lower Friday opening the earnings season on a negative tone and sending a message to global investors that this earnings season may be different by all means from the calm waters of 2017. OIL moved higher to new 2018 highs on the Middle East tension while safe heavens await more ahead of the opening of the trading week today.

US Retail Sales at 1:30 pm is the important news on the agenda Monday.
