Forex Signals Brief for Oct 30: GDP in Focus

Posted Friday, October 30, 2020 by

US Market Wrap

US markets managed to bounce back yesterday, while the USD was also the strongest of the currencies.

The data was good for the US, with GDP coming in at 33% and beating expectations while jobless claims data also beat and continued the recent trend of improving week over week. At the same time, equities had a bounce after a rough session the previous day, but it might be little more than a short-term bounce.

Out of Europe, there was plenty of interest in the ECB and while there was no change in policy, the door is still very much open for further stimulus.

The Data Agenda

Looking ahead and Friday will feature a couple of interesting GDP prints, fresh on the heels of yesterday’s US number.

Early on the EUR/USD will be watching the German GDP print while that will be followed by Eurozone CPI later in the day.

Then in the US session, it is Canada that will be releasing their GDP numbers and the USD/CAD will be watching and it is important to note it has been one of the more volatile majors this week.
