Personal opinions today:

The market worried that the Sino-US trade war is heating up, the US government Treasury Department restricts foreign investment in US investment, and many measures may directly target China. Also, the US government once again pointed out that China is a currency manipulator, and the market is more worried about the deterioration of relations between the two countries. In addition, in November, the US presidential midterm election was approaching. The market worried about political changes. The funds were transferred from the stock market to the bond market. The US Dow fell over 800 points. The funds turned to the bond market and the US bond yields rose.

Global stock markets were dragged down, and the Nikkei index also fell over 800 points. Global stock markets and the Nikkei index fell, indirectly negative dollar against the yen, boosting gold. The fall in the dollar will help the flow of funds to the European currency. However, the Sino-US trade is heating up, affecting the Chinese economy, offshore renminbi, Australian dollar and New Zealand dollar respectively. Finally, due to uncertain economic prospects and a sharp increase in US crude oil inventories, crude oil prices fell from US$74 to US$72, and the technical trend fell below US$73.

Market worries are Sino-US heating up, and US Treasury yields have risen to short-term highs. The market is waiting the performance of the US consumer price index and the number of US initial jobless claims tonight. At present, the US dollar is looking stronger. If the consumer price index is rising. The jobless claims will decrease, which will trigger the Fed to raise interest rates, but it will also affect the economic growth prospects and worry about the loss of corporate profits. Capital flows into the bond market, capital liquidity is reduced, and the stock market is more difficult to rebound. The dollar is less optimistic, and European currencies and gold prices are likely to bullish.
