The US equity markets are steadying after some losses the day before. This was helped by positive housing data from the US yesterday. New home sales improved and exceeded expectations (1011K vs. 965K). There are some technical factors supporting the stocks too but we won’t go into those in this report.

The blue vertical lines in the above chart show the beginning and the end of the US day session for the equity index futures. After the session ended the futures trade in what’s known as Globex session. The technology stocks rallied the most (red line) indicating the risk-on mode in the US stocks is increasing. There are reports that a $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package might be voted on next week.

The dollar is reacting to the news about more stimulus possibly coming from the US. EURUSD and NZDUSD are attempting a rally, while USDJPY and USDCAD are also losing momentum. Gold (see our analysis here) is showing signs of strength against the dollar. Our focus in today’s trading will be on selling the USD.
