    Summer may be hot, but it’s gone cold by Stephen Pope

    US economic strength and an optimistic Fed are driving the Dollar
    Dollar exorbitant privilege is undermining gold.
    A corrective channel started in April and appears to be taking hold.
    Despite many global problems to drive risk aversion, gold is no longer a safe haven.

    I thought this was a good read, but I always advise reading zero hedge articles with a pinch of salt.

    The market went up in the past years whenever there was a drop in average hourly earnings...but there was no trade war talk back then.

    EU bank stocks on the drop today. All looking negative, NN has broken its up channel and 200 DMA, so should be interesting to see where it heads next.

    ES swing stats for today's open, will be an interesting day, I played the morning RTH gap short and am looking for the next wac a mole opportunity, though by tomorrow I would think the 2800 area will be the attraction given the options market, so hard to keep an eye on the market while provisioning the boat.

    Gold ready for action

    Head of Commodity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Gold ready for action
    Since the mid-May mini collapse, when short-covering took the dollar sharply higher and metals lower, gold has increasingly been settling into a relatively tight range around $1,300/oz. We believe, however, that the risk of another cat-out-of-the-bag rally has increased.
