Personal opinions today
British Prime Minister said that she will submit a draft revision of the Brexit agreement to the British Parliament on Tuesday again, and he hopes that Congress will support her proposal for a Brexit agreement and implement the orderly Brexit before the deadline. If Congress passes the draft, the Brexit deadline is expected to be extended to May 22, otherwise the UK may have to leave Europe in advance without a agreement on April 12, UK time. At that time, all issues come up and expected that the problem will drag down the UK domestic economy step by step. Assuming most of the UK’s assets and funds will flow to other European regions, leading to a possible recession in the UK economy. The Brexit discussion and voting will become a trend of the pound, and it is more likely to increase the fluctuation of the pound exchange rate.
In addition, the market is waiting for the US  ADP employment change and Friday's the US non-farm payrolls. In the short-term the market expected, the number of non-farm payrolls has rebounded from last month, the unemployment rate has remained at 3.8%, and average wages have continued to grow, bullish dollar. On Wednesday, we will observe changes in ADP data, and assess the number of non-farm payrolls. Of course, if the number of non-farm payrolls still below the number of 180,000, reflecting that the US economic is slowing down, and the economic recession is expected, the Fed may consider cutting interest rates, which is negative for the US dollar. Other currencies will have an opportunity to rise against the dollar and gold prices.
