Morning Notes

US Futures are tracking slightly lower this morning while European stocks also trade in the negative by -0.4%. The price of crude slides lower by -1.2% after the Baker Hughes data released on Friday showed US oil rigs at nearly 18 month highs which is weighing on energy stocks. Recent weakness in the dollar and strength in gold can be attributed to President Trump’s administrations comments on restructuring trade with other countries. Asian stocks closed mostly mixed.
