The dollar traded sideways versus majors on very little markets driving news leaving investors awaiting on the sidelines as the US China trade war continues to linger. Global equity markets traded mostly higher led by a strong financial sector in the EU and US and the S&P500 standing again at all time highs. Overall the markets traded in zero ranges and very low trading volumes. Metals traded higher on a softer dollar and Gold closed at 1204$ per ounce while the biggest mover on the day was Oil, jumping near two percent on the fifth consecutive drop in US stockpiles and Saudi Arabia production worries to close at 71.12$ per barrel.

UK Retail Sales at 9:30 am is the important news on the agenda Thursday.
