Good morning,

Asian markets saw Japanese exports rise, while imports were down. USDJPY trading at 121.58 at time of writing. Today is expected to have a slower than usual pace, due mainly to the Whit Monday holiday in Europe. The NIKKEI closed at 20413.77 up 149.36 points or  0.74%

Italian Trade Balance figures for April are the extent of the scheduled data releases from the Euro Zone area this session. Markets remain closed in the UK and Germany. EURUSD trading at 1.0987 at time of writing.

Across the Atlantic today we will have very little data to digest. Members of the Fed will speak today, including Loretta J. Mester and Stanley Fischer. Durable Goods Orders will be the main data from the US out during tomorrow's session. USOIL is trading at $59.91 per barrel.

The DOW closed at 18232.02 down 53.72 points or minus 0.29% following Friday's session.

Hope you all have a nice week.
