Summary:  Volatility remains

Good Morning,

Friday turned out to be a bit of a crazy day, especially in the FX markets as US labor data came . The Non-Farm Payroll came better than expected but the unemployment rose as well, raising hopes the fed may find room for a dovish December meeting.

In addition, rumors of China winding down Corona measures did the rest, the Dow gained 1.3%, the s6p 1.4% and the Nasdaq 1.3%. The USD Index fell from 113 to 111 and Gold and Silver jumped higher.  Gold jumped 3% and seems to have the 1700 in sight, currently 1670. Silver tested the 21. Interestingly rates saw no significant change, the US 10 Year trades between 4.10 and 4.20

GBP had ha very volatile session and is likely the trade for lovers of volatility as the Bank of England and the new government are struggling with recession and inflation at the same time. Cable fell 2% last Thursday after dovish Bank of England comments, but bounced 1.9% Friday.

The GER40 gained almost 500 points on Thursday and Friday, hitting a high above 13500.

This morning there is a little risk averseness or profit-taking as Chinese trade data came in very weak and China also denies loosening corona measures.

What matters this week? The US Midterm election and the US CPI on Thursday will most likely be the events of the week, we are in a very interesting environment where smaller events can have a massive impact. We seem to have huge amounts of cash as well as hopes on the sidelines, ready to jump at any ray of hope to salvage the year.


Twitter laid off a large part of the workforce on Friday and this morning we are hearing reports, Meta may do the same.

China's exports and imports unexpectedly contracted in October, the first simultaneous slump since May 2020. Exports fell by 0.3% against an expectation of +4.3% and imports by 0.7% against an expected rise of 0.1%.
