Here is what you need to know on Friday, November 25:

US equity markets re-open today for a shortened session after Thanksgiving. Occasionally that can make for a sprint to the finish line on heightened volatility but that seems unlikely this time around. Bond markets remain pretty calm and the earlier drop in US Treasury yields is being partially reversed today. That is leading everything risk-off higher with the US Dollar and Oil both up. The situation in China remains a moveable feast as more covid lockdowns seem to be announced daily and protest at the Foxconn plant worsen. Overnight the Chinese bank's reserve requirements were also lowered, a form of easing. The US Dollar caught a small bid on this news. 

Gold price is lower on the back of the strong dollar and has higher yields of $1,747 now. Oil is $78.66 while the US Dollar Index (DXY) is 106.30. Bitcoin price is at $16,400.
