typing, while WTI deals ~$0.60 higher.
- The dollar index climbed to a new YtD high of 99.67 yesterday before taking a
nosedive. The initial upswing was driven by higher U.S. Tsy yields (after a weak

said he expects solid growth in U.S. economy. This was before DXY dipped in
reaction to a miss in U.S. ISM m'fing, which printed at the lowest level in 10
years and indicated that contraction in the sector accelerated, even as
projections were for the headline number to come in at the breakeven level of
50.0. The survey was also particularly downbeat on employment. Late doors saw
gyrations on the back of the latest Brexit reports, which moved cable around.
- A fall through the 99.00 mark would invite DXY bears to target the 38.2%
retracement of this month's rally at 98.98. Conversely, yesterday's YtD peak at
