Personal opinions today:

U.S. December ADP job change beat market expectations to 202K. Tonight, the U.S. labor department will release December Non-farm payroll. The dollar was supported by market expectations that non-farm payrolls will continue to grow. European currencies and commodity currencies fell. Commodity prices, gold, silver, and crude oil were adjusted ahead of U.S. non-farm payroll. On the stock market, investors expected U.S. jobs number growth and market forecasts for U.S. corporate earnings growth in the Q4. Dow futures continued to rise, with Asian stock markets also rising in Asia trading today.

The dollar index, Dow futures, and the world stock index rose ahead of the December non-farm payrolls report. Gold, silver and oil prices adjusted. After the non-farm payrolls data, the above-mentioned investment product price trend may reverse.

Dollar to yen
