April 12, 2018.

The dollar index traded sideways most of the trading day as investors cope with the geopolitical tension over Syria, while the looming trade war between China and US took a back stage for now. OIL was again the winner climbing to fresh 2018 highs on Middle East tension, despite the surge in US production and an unexpected rise in US inventories. Commodities markets traded flat despite the surge in Gold early morning while global markets traded lower as investors sat on the sideline ahead of the earnings season set to open next week.

ECB Monetary meeting at 12:30 pm is the important news on the agenda Thursday.
