CWG future forecast:

This trading day is data intensive, which will directly reflect the impact of the epidemic on the global economy. In early trading, Japan's monthly unemployment rate was announced. In Europe, attention was paid to various economic data released by Britain, France, Germany and the euro zone. In the U.S. market period, economic data were released in the United States and Canada. Countries received the impact of the epidemic, and the data is not expected to be ideal.


Institutional Analysis: according to standard bank analysis, the coronavirus has a symmetrical impact on most currency exchange rate materials, except the euro. The coronavirus pandemic, which has brought about the level of foreign exchange fluctuation that has not appeared since the financial crisis, will be a general symmetrical impact, and will eventually make most of the currency exchange rates close to the level before the outbreak, with the exception of the euro. Although it is believed that the US and Europe may fall to 1:1 parity, at this stage, as long as the US dollar financing pressure is still contained, there is limited space for the US dollar to significantly exceed the parity.

Council of America consumer confidence index: the Council of America announced that the consumer confidence index is to assess consumers' confidence in the business environment, employment and personal income. Through thousands of e-mail surveys, the ACSA consumer confidence index has the most extensive consumer sampling. The level of consumer confidence is usually closely related to consumer spending, and this economic event will have a certain impact on the trend of the US dollar. If the data released is higher than expected, it will benefit the US dollar, if the data is lower than expected, it will be negative.
