ATFX Market Update - 2019.06.11


Personal opinions today:

U.S. and Mexico agreement risk easing, risk sentiment cooled, the dollar to rise. Gold prices fell, European currencies and commodity currencies adjusted. But fears of a global economic slowdown were widely, with crude oil prices falling more than 1% and US crude oil prices closing below $54. The market is focused on US API stocks tomorrow, which will have an impact on crude oil prices.

UK manufacturing and industrial output fell yesterday, its GDP contracted in the three months to April, and today's widely expected rise unemployment rate and jobless claims in May, weighed against GBPUSD. It also focused on the Eurozone investor sentiment index in June and the U.S. PPI for May. If the U.S. PPI falls in May, the dollar fall. European currencies, commodity currencies and gold prices could benefit, indirectly bullish. In addition, the tension between China and the United States may once again lead to a drop in investment sentiment. Keep wait and see any negative news will affect global stock markets and boost gold prices.

Today, the market focus was on the Eurozone Sentix investor sentiment index in June, as well as the UK unemployment and jobless claims figures in May. Markets are expecting the data to be negative for the euro, which is believed to be holding back gains ahead of the release. In addition, the U.S. monthly PPI rate for May.
