Good morning traders, US stock futures are about 0.5% lower at the moment, gold and silver are off about 1%, while crude is down 2%. Dollar and treasuries are also ticking slightly lower. Earnings season is winding down with most of the big names out of the way. $CSCO was down over 5% on earnings last night. Crypto's are a little higher after yesterdays big selloff. Trade well.
