Summary:  Will Risk Sentiment hold?

Good Morning, 

Equities soared higher on Friday with good earnings being cited as the trigger alongside bargain hunting - this shows there are  substantial amounts o money on the sidelines. The Dow closed up 1%, S&P 500 up 1.89% and the Nasdaq up 2.66%. Volume was more than 10% higher than average. The GE40 is near 15100 again.

Even though the 10 Year Rate in the US rises to 3.48, the UD remains under pressure and the UD Index falls to 101.70. 101.20 is the next significant support.

EURUSD is trading at 109,15, GBPUSD  1.2425 and UDCF 0.9173. The Yen is weak at 1.2995 a new Governor of the Bank of Japan will be announced in  a month.

Gold is 1922 and Silver 23.85 Gold is trading at the 2011 high and a real break higher would make room for a test of the 2000 again. Silver needs to break the 24.50 for any more room.

Bitcoin has risen to 22750 and is testing the September highs, a break here indicates room to 25k.

The big questions if Risk on sentiment holds. This week with China on the sidelines, focus will be on earnings and tier two economic data. The U Debt ceiling will be a topic until resolution and become more urgent when we approach the deadlines.

China is closed this week for the start of the new year.
