Whether President Trump and his advisers are fans of Neil Sedaka we probably will never know, but with the Q2 US GDP underwhelming on Friday and seemingly unable to break up into a higher range, Sedaka’s number one hit ‘’breaking up is hard to do’’ could be one of those stress songs that keeps playing in your head. The task of getting the US economy growing up towards 3% amid internal turmoil and a Republican Congress that doesn’t want to play ball appears to be getting harder and harder. On Friday disappointing US data releases provided the excuse to sell the US Dollar and buy US Treasuries while earnings results from Amazon weighted on tech stocks.
