Good Morning!

Trade-related headlines are likely to drive investor sentiment this week, as investors look ahead to a meeting between U.S. President Trump and China President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina.
In Europe, Brexit headlines will be in focus after European Union leaders endorsed Theresa May's Brexit plans yesterday, setting up a showdown with lawmakers in her own country.
Global financial markets will also pay close attention to comments from a handful of Fed officials, including Chair Powell, for additional insight into the outlook for monetary policy in the months ahead.
On the data front, there is important third-quarter U.S. growth data this week, which should lend further support to the notion that the economy is on solid footing.
Asian shares edged higher today, though investors were cautious as plunging oil prices fanned worries about a dimming outlook for the global economy.
Oil prices steadied today after plunging nearly 8 percent in the previous session, but remain under pressure with Brent crude below $60 per barrel amid weak fundamentals and struggling financial markets.
The dollar index rose today, as investors sought shelter in safe haven currencies as fears of a global growth slowdown and U.S.-Sino trade tensions sapped risk appetite.
The Indian Unit, however, is seen opening strong against the Dollar at 70.40 today and is expected to play the 70.00-70.80 range for the day.
