· *EUR/USD drops further on the back of a stronger US dollar. *
· *Euro consolidates daily and weekly losses versus the greenback.*
The EUR/USD pair reached a fresh weekly low late on Friday at 1.1332. It remains near the low on, consolidating important daily losses. From the level, it had a week ago, trades 80 pips below and it could post the lowest weekly close since June 2017 if it drops a few extra pips.
A stronger US dollar pushed the pair further to the downside during the American session. The DXY is testing the 97.00 area, trading at weekly highs, after opening the day around 96.50.
The move to the upside in the greenback takes place amid a sell-off in crude oil prices. The greenback receives support from risk aversion while the euro remains limited ahead of a key Brexit weekend and also amid the ongoing tensions between Italy and the European Commission regarding the budget.
*EUR/USD Technical outlook *
“The weekly chart for the pair shows that it´s battling with the 50% retracement of the mentioned rally, and the weekly chart shows that, while it holds above the 200 SMA, the 20 SMA is crossing below the 100 SMA some 200 pips above the current level. Technical indicators remain within negative ground, the Momentum retreating just modestly from its mid-line, but the RSI hovering near oversold readings, skewing the risk to the downside”, says Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at FXStreet.
According to her, the daily chart also supports a bearish extension as EUR/USD stands below its 20-DMA after spending most of the week above it, still well below bearish 100 and 200 SMA, and with technical indicators accelerating their declines within negative levels. She places the immediate support at 1.1310, the 61.8% retracement of the rally and below, the yearly low at 1.1215. Reported by FXstreet.com 11 hours ago.

· *Global stocks bounce back after a bloody Black Friday batters US equities. US futures are up, led by a rally in tech shares. *
· *Amazon is up 2.7% in premarket trading on Cyber Monday. *
· *European Stocks are rebounding on optimism around Italy's budget progress — the FTSE MIB is up almost 3%.*
Global stocks are enjoying a relief rally, led by a tech revival in the US and optimism around Italy's budget deal with the EU, after a volatile week that was capped by the worst Black Friday trading day since 2010.
US futures rallied while shares of Amazon soared in premarket trading, up 2.7%. It's a sign investors are cheery about the retailer's prospects on the biggest American online shopping day of the year. So called Cyber Monday is set to see a spike in sales figures after retail had one of the best Black Fridays on record with total spending hitting around $60 billion, up approximately 6% from last year.
Investors that day were skittish, though — Friday saw one of the weakest Black Friday trading sessions in eight years, according to Markets.com.
The picture contrasts with weeks of negativity around so-called FAANG group — consisting of Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google. Futures on the tech-heavy Nasdaq index point to an opening rally of about 1.8% on Monday. Both Apple and Facebook were trading up 1.9% in premarket trading in New York.

The government is discussing reducing next year's budget deficit target to as low as 2% of gross domestic product from the draft budget target of 2.4% of GDP, according to Reuters.
The Euro Stoxx 600 gained 1.3% as of 10.00 a.m in London (5.00 a.m EST) while Italy's FTSE MIB was up 3%, leading gains in other European markets on Monday.
Italian Lenders UniCredit and Intesa Sanpaolo were up 5.8% and 5.3% respectively, leading Italian banks higher.
Asian markets closed flat on Monday. Brent Crude rose above $60 a barrel and is trading up 1.6%.

Author Lynn Case presents a sexy crime mystery filled with intriguing twists and turns
RENO, Nev. (PRWEB) November 26, 2018
Fiction author Lynn Case has released “Gabrielle, Lost” as part of her series of books following the four girl friends featured in her hit suspense thriller, “Fears Revenge.” In “Gabrielle, Lost,” a modern-day romance peppered with crime and mystery, readers are introduced to protagonist and former party girl, Gabrielle Grimaldi.
Finally finding the man of her dreams, Gabrielle, is ready to settle down with Frank, however her career in the fashion world is beginning to take off which grants her the opportunity to train in Italy thus temporarily parting the two. While in Italy, Gabrielle meets Giada (Gia) Rosso, a wild Italian, fast driving, hot tempered fashion house maverick who is assigned to train her and the two form an instant connection that extends beyond professional admiration.
Along the way, Gabrielle meets Gia’s handsome and charming brother Antonio, and tensions begin to rise between the three after the siblings set a secret bet, all the while Gabrielle starts to unravel a questionable family business venture she discovers they are involved in. As Gabrielle becomes deeper entwined with the Rosso family will she begin to revert to her old ways or stay true to her boyfriend back in America?
“Gabrielle is a strong female character who is able to face what is thrown at her ultimately coming out stronger in the end,” said Case. “She is not afraid to love who she loves, no matter the gender. It is important to be open minded, especially in today’s society, as love comes in all shapes and sizes and who you love is not a choice you get to make.”
Case is also the author of the paranormal mystery, “Return to Lily Cove,” and the murder mystery “Feathers in the Wind,” which also feature lead female characters from her first novel, “Fears Revenge.” She is currently writing her next fiction novel that will follow the adventures of a female pirate.

About the author
Author Lynn Case spent over a year researching Italy and other aspects of “Gabrielle, Lost” to help bring her fictional world to life and received lots of inspiration for her books from her time traveling and working as a long haul truck driver along with her husband. During this time, they encountered people of all walks of life while traveling across the country helping to inspire characters featured in her works “Fears Revenge,” “Gabrielle, Lost,” “Return to Lily Cove,” and “Feathers in the Wind.” Case has lived in Texas, Alaska, California and now resides in Reno, Nevada. She featured a bi-sexual lead and lesbian relationship in her book as she is a supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and wanted to highlight the importance of acceptance and being open minded. No longer a long haul truck driver, Case focuses her time on her writing.

· *Higher risk appetite boosts stocks on Monday.*
· *CBOE Volatility Index drops nearly 5% in the first hour.*
· *All 11 major sectors start the day in the positive territory.*
The strong rebound witnessed in the European stocks on Monday helped Wall Street start the week on a positive note. The CBOE Volatility Index, Wall Street's fear gauge, fell nearly 5% to reveal a higher risk appetite. As of writing, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 1.3% on the day at 24,600.80 while the S&P 500 was adding 1.2% to 2,663.77 and the Nasdaq Composite was gaining 1.45% to 6,621.92.
Reports of Italy being open to cut the deficit target to appease the EU caused the country's 10-year bond yield to drop more than 4% today and allowed the shares of financial firms find demand. At the moment, the S&P 500 Financials Index was up 1.76% on the day. Additionally, a more-than-3% recovery seen in crude oil prices on Monday lifted the S&P 500 Energy Index, which was rising 1.78% at the time of press.
Meanwhile, the so-called defensive sectors are underperforming in early trade with the S&P 500 Real Estate and Utilities indexes adding only 0.27% and 0.42%, respectively. Reported by FXstreet.com 14 hours ago.
Participants of this webinar, sponsored by DiaSorin on December 6, will learn more about the bone metabolic disorder in CKD patients and the KDIGO recommendations concerning the measurement of the serum concentration of PTH, vitamin D metabolites and FGF23.
YORBA LINDA, Calif. (PRWEB) November 26, 2018
Alterations in the bone and mineral metabolism is of great concern in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). As the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decreases, phosphatemia tends to increase while the renal secretion of the active vitamin D metabolite decreases with, consequently, increases in both serum PTH and FGF23 levels. This the pathophysiological basis of the so-called CKD-bone and mineral disorders (MBD). Experts in Nephrology have published international guidelines, called the KDIGO/CKD-MBD, to help colleagues deal with these disorders.
The speaker for this webinar will be Mr. Jean-Claude Souberbielle (JCS), now retired (but still active) and who was the Ex head of the hormone laboratory in the Department of Physiology of the University Necker-Enfants Malades Hospital in Paris, France, and an invited Professor at the Liège University, Belgium. Its main research/clinical topics were the growth hormone/IGFI axis and all aspects of bone and mineral metabolism.
Souberbielle will explain the mechanism that regulates the calcium and phosphorus absorption in patients with altered hormone activities and the utility of a few fundamental markers to determine the CKD patient management.
LabRoots will host this webinar December 6, 2018, beginning at 6:00am PST, 9:00am EST, 3:00pm CET. To learn more about this event, the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
