Copper led metals lower since yesterday, Copper fell 35 cents on the pound after hitting a 20 year high, Gold dropped below the 2400 to trade at 2360, Silver fell to 30.30

The Fed minutes were uneventful and did not cause a significant shift in the rate path.

China announced 'punishment' war games around Taiwan after expressing unhappiness with the inauguration speech of President Lai.

The UK will hold general elections on July 4th Indexes are not dramatically changed but the Nasdaq is outperforming over night as the boost from Nvidia is expected, the US500 is 5335, the US 30 39700, the GER40 18717 and the US tech 100 NAS 18865.

The USD Index and Yields are a little higher at 4.43 and 104.90, EURUSD is 1.0823, GBPUSD 1.2722 and USDJPY 156.70. GBPUUSD can be interesting heading into the election, the UK is in an ugly situation of high inflation and a bad outlook.
