Market Volatility:

The US dollar rose for the second consecutive trading day, and the US dollar index stood at the 100 level again, rising 0.66% to around 100.10 as a whole.

The euro fell nearly 1% to close near 1.0858, after hitting a week low. The European Commission urged a new long-term budget agreement to be reached as soon as possible to support recovery from the effects of the outbreak.

The spot gold returned to the top of the $1,600 level, hitting a peak of $1,612.88/ounce in the US market. The number of initial jobless claims increased, and the stock market began to decline, driving a new round of safe haven buying of gold.

Oil prices yesterday set the biggest daily increase on record. US oil rose 35% to US $27.39/barrel at one time, closing up nearly 25%, the biggest one-day increase ever. Brent oil rose 47% to US $36.27/barrel at one time, which is also the largest increase in its history.


CWG future forecast:

During the Asia Europe session of this trading day, few significant data were released. The market focuses on the non-farm data in the US market period. In the case of the increasingly serious epidemic in the United States, the market attaches more importance to the unemployment rate, and believes that the number of employees continues to weaken in the next few weeks. As the U.S. economy maintains a blockade, the report in April may be extremely negative.

Institutional Analysis: Danske Bank analysis believes that the outdated employment report is not expected to shock the market, and the report in April is extremely negative. The non-farm report may not have enough impact on the market, and the data may be out of date, so it is not considered to have a significant impact on the market trend this week. Generally speaking, the U.S. employment report may be regarded as the most important economic data, but the March report given on this trading day may be out of date before it is published, as can be seen from the last breakthrough of 3.3 million people applying for unemployment benefits, and this breakthrough of 6 million people.

CWG financial knowledge:

Changes in non-farm employment in the United States after the March quarter adjustment: the U.S. Department of labor announced that changes in non-agricultural employment is an indicator of changes in monthly employment in all Non-farm enterprises. Total non-farm employment refers to the number of workers who produce about 80% of the GDP of the United States as a whole. The data is one of the most important economic indicators in the United States and has a huge impact on financial markets. The increase in non-farm employment indicates that employment growth will be good for the US dollar; on the contrary, if non-farm employment continues to decline, it will be bad for the US dollar.
