Good Morning,

Inflation worries dominate again and is likely to dominate the week. The USD Index is at the highest level in June and we are looking at an interesting week. The most important data releases are the US CPI on Friday and the ECB Rate decision on Thursday.

The US 10 year rates rose to above 3% again and are currently trading at 3.05%, the German at 1.33 and the Italian at 3.42. The IT-DE spread makes life for the ECB particularly difficult.

EURUSDD fell below 1.07 again to trade 1.0670, GBPUSD is below 1.25 again while the Japanese Yen continues it`s decline to trade at 20 year lows near 133. Gold and Silver are in mid- range after being rejected at the upside and trade at 1838 and 21.80. Bitcoin has trouble to move away from the 30k.

Equities are in limbo, gaining slightly yesterday but giving up ground this morning. The Dow is trading at 32700, the US500 4100 and the GER40 at 14550.

The technical picture looks interesting with Equities having more room to the upside while Bonds seems to be bearish.
