ATFX Market Outlook, 2020 Mar 10
Personal opinions today:
In the first quarter of 2020, the first black swan event occurred due to the sharp drop in US Treasury yields and the price of crude oil, and the global financial market fluctuated.
Dow futures and global stock markets fell as a new bout of pneumonia weighed on confidence in the economic outlook. Investors and financials expect the federal reserve to meet next week and possibly cut the federal interest rate further. Futures rates suggest the rate cut could be increased from 0.75% to 1%. Traders estimate the chance of a 1% rate cut at 70. US Treasury yields continued to fall but rose slightly before the start of trading in Asia today as equity markets steadied following the US President's tax cut comments. The dollar index and Dow futures began to narrow losses in Asian trading, believing investors were buying the dollar and Dow component at bargain prices. Rising stocks weigh on gold prices.
