    The rising dollar is having a negative impact on commodities for a second day. Not least WTI crude oil where the July contract is close to testing the recent low from last Tuesday. Last week the US rig count dropped by just one and this has been taken as a sign that the current price level will be high enough to trigger a pick-up in US production. In the Middle East the battle for market share has kept production elevated despite the heightened turmoil in both Iraq, Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
    Money managers cut net-longs in both WTI and Brent crude as of May 19th but the combined long of almost 500 million barrels remain elevated which leaves both vulnerable to further long liquidation. Especially if the recent lows at $57.93 in CLN5 and $63.95 in LCON5 are taken out.

    COT: Plenty of room for the dollar bulls
    The week long dollar correction seems to have ended following last Friday's break higher. Money managers using IMM currency futures had scaled back their bullish dollar bets by 40% during this time leaving them plenty of room to support the resumption of dollar strength.

    Morning Markets: Draghi ready to fight
    European Central Bank president Mario Draghi may well come out swinging this morning after the US Fed's Stanley Fischer could not resist a swipe at the whole euro project last night. Expect potential EURUSD fireworks if the language gets tasty.
