Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Morning, Traders!
Happy Friday! It is the 19th of January, here are some things to look out for today.

US equities were poised for a second day of gains as optimism over tech earnings boosted investor sentiment, setting up the S&P 500 for a record close. A gauge of the dollar fell for the second day but remained on track for its third consecutive week of gains. Treasuries were little changed. The yen pared a loss to trade flat against the dollar after Japan’s finance minister said they are closely watching FX movements. The pound led G10 losses as UK retail sales slumped.
