Disappointing EU GDP and most importantly higher initial Jobless claims caused the expectation for a pause by the Fed on Wednesday to rise again, there is a 75% chance of no change.
2 year yields remain little changed at now 4.51%, the USD Index falls to 103.40, EURUSD rises to 1.0770, GBPUSD 1.2550, USDJPY 139.36. Gold and Silver jumped to 1963 and 24.24, The Turkish Lira continues it`s decline to 23.45 against the USD.
Ole on Gold: Gold buyers look beyond current headwinds:

Today’s calendar is virtually empty ahead of a very busy week coming up with the CPI and three key central bank decisions from the US, EU and Japan.
Today there will be lot`s of political discussions following the indictment of Donald Trump for 7 criminal offenses and a possible Chinese spy base in Cuba.
In my View the market is too complacent in its expectation of volatility as we have lots of risk both ways looming- trade safely. Options are fairly cheap if you expect sharp moves next week.
