Summary:  Busy week ahead

Good Morning,

We are heading into a busy week with a bit of a consolidation. Despite the hawkish fed and ECB markets were overall strong last week with the Nasdaq up more than 3% and the S&P 500 2.6%.  and the USD Index had the worst week in 5 months.

Thomas Barkin and Christopher Waller were on the wires with hawkish statements on Friday but with only marginal impact.

At the moment, the US 500 is trading at 4407, the US 30 34350 the US Tech 100 NAS 15100 and the GER40 16273.

EURUSD is well above the 1.09, GBPUSD above 1.28 and USDJPY remains weak at 141,55. Gold and Silver remain off last weeks lows at 1955 and 24.12. USDTRY seems to be consolidating at 23.60.

Commodities had a  strong week and are looking at the best month for a long time:
