US Futures are pointing to a higher open this morning and EU markets are trading in positive territory as investors await the release of more earnings and the US un-employment claims for the week. Positive corona virus news coming from NY governor Cuomo helped calm the markets as well as indications from across Europe of a slow return to calm and some lifts in the lockdown across the Eurozone. Asian markets closed the session mixed – the NIKKEI traded lower while Mainland China closed higher. FX markets traded a mixed session overnight as well, the dollar index is at 99.83 this morning, up 0.4% and most FX markets are trading a narrow range session. Gold continues to be the focus for investors, up again this morning and trading at 7-year highs at $1,762, up 1.23%. Silver is trading at $15.83 this morning, up 2% as well. Oil reversed course this morning after another weak session yesterday, as markets face a positive sentiment, trading at 20.12 and up 1.22% from 20 -year lows.  

US Un-employment claims and Philly FED Manufacturing Index at 1:30 pm are the important news on the agenda Thursday, (all times GMT).
