ATFX Market Outlook, 2020 Jan 16
 
Personal opinions today: 
 
Markets took note of the Fed beige book report the moderate performance of the U.S. regional economy, which could face downside risks in the face of a trade war and U.S. tariffs. Investors are thinking FOMC would keep interest rates unchanged and keep a low-interest policy. 
 
The first phase of the trade agreement between China and the United States was formally signed. The US President said that they will move forward to the second phase and end the trade gap between the two countries. The news was positive for stocks, with Dow futures rising, leading Asian markets to open higher. If the stock market continues to rise, it is believed that will bullish crude oil prices, bearish gold, and silver.
 
In European trading today, the European currency will be looking at Germany’s December CPI final reading and the minutes of the ECB monetary policy. Now, on the basis of previous Eurozone economic inflation data, it is expected to be bearish for the euro. Tonight's focus will include U.S. retail sales for December, jobless claims for last week and U.S. business inventories for November. Then, at 02:00 a.m., watch for comments from ECB President, looking for clues to next week's ECB policy meeting and setting the trends of the Euro.
