Personal opinions today:


To the diversification of products, the US Dow has an impact on global markets and financial products. This commentary has joined the US Dow Jones Industrial Index futures US30 analysis from today, please read here below!


Personal insight today:


The investment market fluctuated before the end of this year, the US Dow continued to fluctuations. The US Dow was affected by the decline in consumer confidence index last night. The stocks of technology and non-consumer industries fell, dragging the US Dow to 800 points, and the last three hours before the market closed. Reversal and go higher, closing at 23,200 points. The Dow rebounded and closed, and Japan’s Nikkei index rebound and closed above 20,000 points. Under the volatility of the stock market, the USD/JPY also reversed its trend. The gold could not break the past resistance US1279.


Market volatility in recent weeks is related to the settlement of fund managers before the end of the year. Another possibility is that the US government's appropriation negotiations are still in a state of stalemate. Some US government departments, therefore “stopped” and have no time limit. The market has been waiting for the US President to negotiate with the US House of Representatives. It is generally believed that the US President’s negotiations with the US House of Representatives can finally be resolved. Some investors entered the market when the stock market was in a downturn, but the Dollar Index still fell. Anyway, the last day of trading in this week, the market is expected to continue to fluctuate, paying attention to trading risks.
