Pls bear in mind that due to Labor Day, it is a US Holiday.
A massively disappointing Nonfarm on Friday gave the Nasdaq another push higher, and also boosted gold and silver firmly off the lows.

The Dow slipped 0.21%, the S&P 0.03% while the Nasdaq gained 0.21%. In Asia, the Nikkei gained 1.8%,
10 year yields traded a wide range from just below 1.27 to above 1.33, currently 1.3257, the USD index tested the 92 support only to revert back to 92.20 and crypto rises further, despite regulations in Singapore becoming tighter. Bitcoin trades at 51800 and Ethereum is testing the 4.000. EURUSD trades as far as 1.19 Gold needs to break the 1833 and Silver the 25 for further upside potential.
