ATFX Market Outlook, 2019 Nov 12
Personal opinions today:
The US President continue to impose additional tariffs before trade negotiations can be successful. Yesterday the US President eased restrictions on imports of Japanese cars, extending a six-month exemption from tariffs. The market think that this is a good step to release tariffs and go forward, boost investment sentiment. Risk aversion cooled again after comments from the U.S. President and U.S. trade officials. The Japanese yen, gold and silver stalled and fell. Crude oil prices have strengthened.
In European trading today, the focus was on UK jobless claims in October and German ZEW economic sentiment index in November. In the U.S. trading hours, the federal reserve vice chairman speech.

The US and China is going to sign the first phase of a trade agreement next month, and the trade tariff to improve to boost investment sentiment. But if trade tensions persist, the declines could begin in Europe. Technically, Dow futures will test 27420 or 27315 support.
