Market sentiment

The market sentiment was mixed at the beginning of the week amid the decreased risk appetite, which also resulted in the closing of outstanding long positions. However, the sentiment improved amid progress in tax reform plans and renewed strength in equity markets. The market sentiment is also supported by the stronger-than-expected second revision of the US GDP on Wednesday. The market is looking forward to the release of initial jobless claims and personal spending data at 8:30 AM EST today.

At 6:25 AM EST today, the US Dollar Index is trading at 93.39—a gain of 0.25%.

US Treasury yields

After trading with mixed sentiment last week, US Treasury yields started this week on a weaker note. However, Treasury yields regained strength after the upward revision in the US 3Q17 GDP on Wednesday. Treasury yields traded with strength in the early hours on November 30.
