ATFX Market Outlook, 2019 Oct 29
Personal opinions today:
The European Union has agreed to a three-month extension for Brexit until January 31 to ease the risk of Brexit. Besides, the U.S. President said he intends to extend exemptions on nearly $34 billion in Chinese imports goods and plans to sign trade agreements with China ahead of time. Investment sentiment rose, with Dow futures closing higher, leading Asian equities higher. Stocks rose as risk aversion improved, while the Japanese yen, gold and silver rose.
Today, the federal reserve formally convened a two-day meeting to announce the results on October 31. The consensus was to cut interest rates by 25 basis points. The private ADP payroll release tomorrow, most of expected to reflect the official non-farm payroll on Friday. Separately, the first estimate of U.S. third-quarter GDP, released tomorrow, is likely to fall to 1.7%, in line with the federal reserve's interest rate cut to 1.75%. It is believed that the release of U.S. ADP private payrolls and the preliminary U.S. third-quarter GDP report could lead to market volatility, with a short-term dollar and dow futures falling until the official U.S. non-farm payrolls results are released. The strength of the U.S. data directly affects the market investment sentiment and risk aversion. Watch out the trend change for gold, silver and the Japanese yen.
