Personal opinions today:
 
Following the fall of China’s manufacturing purchasing managers’ index, the US’s manufacturing purchasing managers’ index fell in December last year, falling to 54.1, down from 59.3 last month, bringing the US economy to contract and the prospects worsening. Last night, the US stock market once fell more than 700 points, closing some of the lost ground, but still closed earlier than the day, down 685 points. The market is watching the increase in the number of US non-farm payrolls tonight. It is expected that the US ADP job data will be strong last night, which is expected to boost the US Dow, and then boost the global stock market and the Asian stock market early next week.
 
Last night, the US announced that ADP employment in December exceeded 270,000, an increase from the past year, which means that the confidence in business activities is still strong. Unfortunately, the number of initial jobless claims has increased by 10,000 from last week.  Probably, tonight the US officially announced the non-farm payroll population rise. But the unemployment rate and average wage results, the market is more concerned about whether the average wage has improved. If the number of ADP increases, it is expected to drive wage increases. The higher increase 
, it could become the stronger the US dollar. However, please pay attention to trading risks and avoid over trade.
 
In this afternoon, the European data is important , included the German job data and Eurozone consumer price index CPl. At 21:30 in the evening, the US job report and Canada job data which are important data for tonight. It is expected that the market will fluctuate today, while the response needs speed up when trading.
 
* Due to the impact of many heavy data today, market risks have increased more than normal, market conditions have fluctuated, financial institutions and banks' quotations and spreads have changed more than normal, and there may be slippage and delayed quotations. 
 
Please note! It is recommended to avoid trading when the heavy data appears for a moment, and then capture the market conditions and after the data is released, so as not to cause unnecessary losses!
 
Today's suggestion:
 
EURUSD 
1.1445/1.1475 resistance
1.1375/1.1345 support
By technically estimated that the euro will remain within the fluctuation range of 1.1375 to 1.1445 in the short term. The job data both in the Eurozone and the US today. The market is more concerned about the US average wage in December and has the opportunity to generate large market volatility. Therefore, it is expected that the overall volatility of the euro against the US dollar may rise by more than 100 points throughout the day. Technical analysis is more worthy of attention. The euro is facing strong resistance against the US dollar at 1.15, and it is possible to be careful when trading.
 
GBPUSD
1.2685/1.2715 resistance
1.2575/1.2540 support
As the analysis yesterday, assuming the US data is weak, the US Dow and the US dollar may fall, boosting the pound. At present, GBP/USD has the opportunity to test resistance at 1.2685 or 1.2715 before the Eurozone data for the afternoon and the US job data tonight.
