Good Morning

============= Watch out for Futures Expiries today============

Fed Governor Christopher Waller said he was "increasingly confident" that the current central bank benchmark interest rate will prove adequate to lower inflation to the Fed's 2% target. This statement pushed tey year yields lower to 4.28 now.

This boosted equities a little and weakened the dollar a little more. The US500 is trading at 4558 now, the US tech100NAS at 16022 and the GER40 at 15992.

The Dollar Index fell to the lowest since August to 102.63 now, EURUSD is at 1.10 spot on, GBPUSD is at 1.2720 and USDJPY 147.09.

Gold had a very strong day yesterday and rose to 2044 on breaking the resistance at 2015 while Silver is trying to breach the 25. Traders are watching if Gold will close a month above the 2000 mark for the first time in history. We have 38 hours and 2% room.

Oil also gained 2% and copper 1% after Panama is shutting a major copper mine. Bitcoin breached the 38000 to an 18 month high. announced a new AI chip for its cloud computing service but failed to excite traders, shares drop 0.5% while Tesla was the big winner yesterday, up 4.5%.

Koen started a great new format on Options that focusses on volatilities: This guide lists expected movements and implied volatility rankings of stocks with upcoming earnings, key indices, and ETFs. It’s useful for investors, options traders and those interested in post-earnings moves.

From a longer term perspective, Peter wrote on the cyber security industry has been the second best performing theme in equity markets this year driven by strong demand and higher profitability. CrowdStrike reports earnings today with analysts remaining bullish expecting revenue growth of 34% and new record on free cash flow.

With non-top tier data on the agenda, speeches by Thomas Barkin (16:00 CET) Loretta Mester (19:45cet) and the Feds Beige Book at 20:00 will be closely watched but the PCE deflator tomorrow will be the key decisive factor in the month end.
