Good Morning. The DX is down with Bonds flat. US stock futures are higher again. Gold and Silver are higher ostensibly on the back of a softer dollar and Bonds not getting pummeled yet for a change. Crypto is stronger with fresh buy side flows coming from the Micro Bitcoin contract as a possible catalyst. But it's Ethereum that is strongest for the moment having crossed the 3000 threshold last night. Weekend trading took ETH 13% higher and BTC 2.5% up. Energy is mixed and grains are up again.
