The Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite erupted last week as a report on the eruptions defied the least dismal projection of economists. More than 2.5 million non-agricultural payrolls were added compared to -7.5 million expected. The US unemployment rate even fell to 13.3% from 14.7% previously. Analysts were looking for an increase to 19.0%.
Don’t give in to despair, make a game plan
This meant a terrible week for the US dollar tied to paradise, as it plunged to its cheapest average price since early March. Australian and New Zealand sentiment-related dollars exploded higher, testing peaks set earlier this year. Longer term Treasury yields have increased, reflecting growing confidence that has weighed on anti-fiat gold prices.
So far, fears of a second wave of coronavirus and escalating US-Chinese tensions have taken precedence. Next week, all eyes are on the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy announcement as countries around the world continue to slowly lift the foreclosure measures. The main policy parameters of the central bank are expected to remain unchanged, with traders eyeing economic assessments.
Crude oil prices have the OPEC + weekend meeting for support as the commodity production deal could extend the limits of record production. Brexit talks are also continuing for the fate of the transition period. Traders may also look for signs of growing confidence at the end of the week, when the world’s largest economy releases preliminary sentiment data for June.
