Prices are recently taken advantage of the US Dollar (USD) weakness and the global sprint towards an easy money plan. Don’t forget combined data from the US and combined statements from the core risk factors, namely the US-China trade deal and Brexit. Whereas the non-existence of Japanese traders has caused an interruption in the US 10-year treasury yields at 1.714%, Asian stocks and S&P 500 Futures usually register a gentle risk-on sentiment. Next, the global economic schedule is mostly quiet without major data/events in focus. However, trade/Brexit headlines provide a near-term trade direction.
