ATFX Market Outlook, 2019 Nov 5
Personal opinions today:
In Asian trading today, China Caixin services PMI for October, which is expected to fall slightly, with a slight impact on Asian currencies and stock markets. Most importantly, the good progressing China and US trade deal helped Asian stock markets rise, which was bearish for gold and silver prices. Bullish China RMB and crude oil prices. In addition, the RBA announced the interest rate decision by the market most attention. Market estimates of interest rates unchanged, but the monetary policy orientation and outlook are noted. Entering European trading hours, UK services PMI for October and Eurozone PPI for September. The Euro and pound have been trading at high levels recently as markets have long expected growth. If the data is in line with or below expectations, the extent of the difference in the data will determine the direction of the Euro and pound. Prior to U.S. trading, the market was forecasting a decline in the U.S. trade account for September, but the market was expected to wait to see if September factory orders outpaced expectations for a rise in the final Markit services PMI and ISM non-manufacturing PMI for October, which could support the dollar, the Euro and pound, the Swiss franc and the Japanese yen. Gold and silver extended losses. Before the close of U.S. trading, the release of API crude inventories last week, if now estimated to have fallen, could support a rise in crude prices.
