Personal opinions today:
 
In Asian trading yesterday, China announced that the manufacturing purchasing managers' index fell to 49.7 in December. In theory, the index was lower than 50, which caused the deterioration of the economic contraction, the Chinese stock market fell, and the Asian stock market and the European stock market fell as well. In the early of the US stock market trading, the US Apple chairman said that the performance warning, the US Dow extended fell by nearly 2%. Global stock markets fell, capital inflows into the yen and gold, pushing up silver prices as well. The current global stock market is weak, global financial market volatility. Moreover, the US government departments have partially stopped operating, and time is out of date. The market investment mentality is prudent and pessimistic. In the current, the investment market is turbulent and it is recommended to pay attention to risks.
 
At present, the focus of the market is to focus on the number of ADP job data and initial jobless claims released by the US tonight. The above two job data may affect the US official non-farm payroll, unemployment rate and average wage results in tomorrow night. Also, the market is expected to announce at 23:00 tonight, the US December Purchasing Managers Index. The market estimates that all data in the US may perform poorly tonight. It is expected that the above data will be negative for the US dollar before the announcement tonight, which is more likely to affect the global stock market decline as well. It is estimated that the currencies of Europe and Asia Pacific will be stabilized in the short term after a sharp adjustment last night, but the yen and gold prices will likely continue to rise.
 
The investment market has just entered the trading cycle of the new year. Fund house and financial institutions are evaluating with the profit and loss of global economic development and budget enterprises in 2019. The investment market is relatively volatile, not stability. Attention should be paid to trading risks and strict stop loss when investing. If the trading position is under profit, it is recommended to set a profit stop loss and lock in profit to prevent market fluctuations.
 
Today's suggestion:
 
EURUSD 
1.1325/1.1305 support
1.1385/1.1405 resistance
In this analysis suggestion yesterday, it is estimated that the euro will remain within the range of 1.1400 to 1.1480 in the short term. Finally, the euro is adjusted by the high resistance level against the US dollar, and finally fell below the 1.14, and the low was 1.1305. The market is concerned about the impact of the Brexit risk on the Eurozone economy in 2019, not only limiting the euro's gains, but also adjusting the euro exchange rate. The euro zone's money supply is higher than expected by 3.8% this afternoon, while the US job data is weak at night, and there will be an opportunity to boost the euro. The initial resistance targets above are 1.1385 and 1.1405. But if the euro falls below 1.1285 against the dollar, the trend may continue to fall.
 
GBPUSD
1.2585/1.2610 resistance
1.2455/1.2430 support
The market continues to pay attention to the risk of Brexit. The UK government and the UK Prime Minister must announce the Brexit plan this month. It is imperative to arrange a Brexit plan in March to avoid economic damage. Otherwise, the British government will be responsible for all the problems after the Bremom risk. Yesterday, this analysis pointed out that the pound had another chance to test the 1.25 level. Tonight, the pound fell further and fell to 1.2430. The Brexit plan is still in progress and the pound is more volatile.

0.9925/0.9950 resistance

It is estimated that the US dollar against the Swiss franc stopped at 0.9800. On the contrary, the current euro hold the  1.1305 and 1.1285 support, the dollar against the Swiss franc may stop at 0.9950 resistance.
 
USD/JPY
107.75/108.00 resistance
106.80/106.55 support

Coupled with stock market volatility, the yen has become a safe haven and the yen has appreciated. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the recent Japanese holiday, the yen has risen sharply. If the Japanese market resumes tomorrow, triggering the intervention of the Bank of Japan, it may make a large-scale adjustment to the US dollar against the yen. Please pay attention to the investment. At present, please pay attention to the trend of global stock market and how to influence the change of USD/JPY.

1.3600/1.3585 support

Economic growth has indirectly boosted the rise in crude oil prices, as well as the Canadian dollar. Technically, the Canadian dollar may still be weak, but the short-term multiple challenges of 1.3665 resistance failed. If there is no negative factor that causes the Canadian dollar to fall, the USD/CAD trend is expected to return to below 1.3600.

In addition, the US government departments have partially stopped operating, increasing risk aversion and rising investment risks, driving gold to rise. If the US Congress resumes negotiations, the US government will eventually receive government budget, which is believed to be negative for gold. Coupled with progress in Sino-US trade negotiations, it eases risk aversion and believes that if pessimistic sentiment changes, it can cool down the price of gold.
 
US crude oil futures:
47.05/47.55 resistance
45.05/44.55 support
