The dollar traded higher across the board on upbeat US data and a rise in US interest rates, sending the Euro lower and reversing the sentiment for FX investors again. The dollar strength sent metals sharply lower while global equity markets traded in narrow ranges to close the trading week on a flat note. EU markets managed a positive close and overall gained more than two percent for the week for the EURSXX50. US markets traded mostly sideways awaiting news on the U China trade war ongoing saga while OIL traded higher on supply worries and managed a 69$ per barrel close, basically trading flat for the week.

There is no important news on the agenda Monday.
