In the Markets We Thrust.

With the US Markets closed for their, Fourth of July, 243rd Independence Day celebration from the British trading volumes are limited. Investors and Traders from Asia and the EU may have already hedged or closed those pertaining to the US Market.

The economic calendar is light even the 3 earnings reports scheduled for today seem to be tentative.

Traders that opted for the Asian and Australian assets in their various portfolios may have been the big gainers. Despite the disappointing Australian Retail Sales report from the Australian Bureau of Statistics announcing 0.1% instead of the forecasted 0.2 %. The AUD was seem confined into bearish mode trading between 0.7015 – 0.7049

On a Day like this, history may have revealed to us in the past, that the USD usually get a slight boost as more transactions are made using the USD per capita pre and during the celebrations. Only to drop post the holiday.  Traders that shorted the AUD, GBP, and EUR earlier obtained impressive ROI’s (Return on Investment).

To spice up the EU a bit ECB European Central Bankers would be delivering various speeches amid the delivery of the EU’s Retail Sales.

Meanwhile, from the geopolitical arena, the news is trickling in which North Korea is said to attest that President Trump is “Hell-bent on hostile acts” despite the meeting between the two leaders.
