Good Morning,

Markets remain a bit in limbo as stocks are looking for the next key topic, the Dow gave up 0.03%, the S&P gained 0.09% and the Nasdaq lost 0.04%. The GER40 tested the 15900 yesterday but did not manage to hold the level and retreated to 15850.

The USD Index meandered around 102 while the 2 year yield is at 4.2%. EURUSD is 1.0960m USDJPY 134.50 and Gold and Silver 2000 and 25.08. Ole Posted an update Gold and silver consolidate with focus on US rates

GBPUSD rose just now on a higher than feared CPI out of the UK, 10.1 vs 9.8% expected. This calls cor BoE action at the next meeting and confirms the horrible state of the UK economy.
The EU Inflation date will be key for the ECB`s rate path, we are at 66/33 in favor of 25/50 BPS at the next meeting. The peak rate is seen in October at 3.72%. 

Today there are now top releases out of the US, focus will be on earnings – Tesla likely Key, Morgan Stanley is the most important release before the opening bell.
