S&P 500: All-Time High, Nasdaq: All-Time High, Mid Cap 400: All-Time High, Russell 2000: All-Time High

US Vix below 12, barely

US 3 month TBILL yield at 2.09% …. a 10 year high

Most global equity markets higher led by Asia.

Indian Markets all time high in local currency term (in dollar iShares MSCI INDIA is down -1.6% YTD)

Brazil 10-year yield blows out 21 bps and currency flop 5 percent on political concerns.(is this the next turkey)

Argentina peso weakening again but South Africa a bit stronger in sympathy with temporary rebound in Turkish lira, due primarily to closed markets

Nice bounce in metals

Gold up 1.8 percent on the week

Dollar chart looks weak after the blow off gravestone Doji candlestick on August 15, which took the index to 96.984. Nevertheless, 94to hold and the Dixie to trade in a 94-97 range unless U.S. politics gets real UGLY. Not unrealistic, by the way.
