US equity markets continue to sell off after another session with the major indexes closing in the red.
The USD has stabilised a little bit for the time being, which will slow down the volatility in the majors across the board. While the precious metals markets will also benefit to some degree.
However, it was the cryptos that were once again the big mover yesterday, with BTC leading the charge higher as price took out $50,000.
The Data Agenda
As we inch towards Friday’s non-farm payroll data, today we get to see the all-important jobless claims data for the week.
The expectation today is that have jumped higher to 750K and it is clear that this is a number that is struggling to fall. Hopefully, now that US states are starting to fully open and get rid of all masks and business closures, things could start turning around.
