Trading Market Commentary August 30, 2017

US Treasury yields climbed higher, and also the US Dollar rebounded sharply, as yellow metal was moderately lower with crude oil prices mixed. With all of the eyes on President Trump’s tax plan, this upcoming week may deliver very volatile trading in every one of the major global markets as the summer season comes to an end.
