Personal opinions today
 
The US announced that the consumer price index was moderate in February, and the market believes that the Fed’s interest rate hike that will remain cautious. At the same time, US inflation expectations are still lower than the current interest rate of 2.25%, the space for interest rate hikes is limited, and limited the dollar in short term growth. Earlier, it was reported that the Fed is still expected to consider raising interest rates at least once in the second half of the year. The US President also expects US economic growth in the US budget. Compared the other countries, they are currently no consideration of tightening monetary policy or raising interest rates, and the economic outlook is pessimistic, so investors generally support investment in dollar assets. If the US continues to maintain moderate economic growth and monetary policy tends to tighten, it is believed that the dollar can remain strong against major currencies.
 
The British parliamentarians vetoed the draft of the new Brexit agreement submitted by Prime Minister. Today, the British Parliament will discuss the second referendum issue and draft a postponement of the Brexit deadline, and vote for the final choice on Thursday afternoon. Brexit deadline is approaching less than three weeks, the UK faces a variety of anxiety and risks, which will bring different risks to the European currency. It is estimated that the European currency is likely to face downside risks. It means the pound has fallen from a high level and returned to 1.30. As risk aversion heats up, gold and the yen will likely be chased again. The price of gold first hit $1,300. If the European problem is approaching, can the Swiss franc become a safe haven for European currency, and it will be quoted at any time this week. It is recommended that pay attention to risk management, capital and position control.
