Personal opinions today:
 
China-US trade negotiations are progressing well. No any remarks or news have damaged their cooperation right now. The market expects the agreement to be finalised in two to three weeks. With the improvement of China-US relations, the investment sentiment bullish, and risk aversion cooled. Dow futures gained, gold and the yen fell and crude oil around $53. European currencies rose as the British prime minister claimed success in his bid for a Brexit deal with the European Commission, pulling the pound higher and the Euro rose indirectly.
 
In European trading today, the UK released the September CPI and retail price index, and the final CPI for the Eurozone in September. More focus on the U.S. retail sales for September was highlighted in U.S. trading hours ahead of the Fed Beige Book on the US economy. If weak U.S. retail sales and the Fed Beige book show that the U.S. economy is slowing, it could send Dow futures and crude oil lower, and gold could lead the rally and lead-silver to follow.

Today's suggestion:
 
Euro/dollar
1.1075/1.1085 resistance
1.1005/1.0995 support
The dollar fell in favor of the euro as the U.S. economy weakened and expectations of a Fed rate cut. On the other hands, the UK sent out a rumor, the Euro test 1.1045 as followed British pound rose. However, the euro could find new headwinds if inflation rises in the eurozone and the U.K. Conversely, the euro adjustment may deepen. Yesterday this analysis indicated that the market would take advantage of the Brexit negotiations news, the impact of the British pound and indirect effects on the euro. The exchange also focuses today on U.S. retail sales and the Fed Beige Book, which could move the Euro.
 
Pound to dollar
1.2835/1.2845 resistance
1.2655/1.2645 support
The British prime minister presented the new Brexit deal to the European Union, which said it was open to discussion and was not confident the end of the month could resolve it. But when parliament reopened, after the Royal family called for solvent as soon by the end of the month. Yesterday the British prime minister claimed to support, and the pound rose to 1.28. For now, the market is mostly waiting for the European parliament to rule on Thursday or Friday on a deal, approved or not. If ultimately rejected, it could lead to a deep negative for the pound. Today focus, US release retail sales and the Fed Beige Book on the economy could move the pound.

108.30/108.20 support
Investment sentiment well by progress China-US trade talks and the prospect of support for Britain's exit from the European Union. Dow and Nikkei futures rose, leading the dollar higher against the yen. But for now, it's worth noting the U.S. retail sales data and the Fed Beige Book. If the data is weak and the U.S. economy proves recessionary, Dow and Nikkei futures could fall, respectively, and the USDJPY could follow. Technical and investment confidence, the dollar against the yen 109 resistance is critical.

China-US made progress well in trade negotiations and probably succeeded new Brexit deal. Dow and Nikkei futures rose, and gold fell yesterday. U.S. retail sales are expected to fall today, adding to expectations that the federal reserve will cut interest rates. Money flows back into the gold market to hedge; gold prices are likely to rise. The market looks to the U.S. economic report, the Fed beige book, which could cause gold prices to grow if it shows rising economic uncertainty during Dow futures fall. Silver tends to track gold, so keep an eye on it.
 
U.S. Dow Jones industrial average futures US30

As the US economic slowdown, FOMC would consider cut the Fed fund rate. Which is bullish for cryptocurrencies, bullish Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Technically, the bitcoin price support at US7885 is critical. Assuming the bitcoin price as followed the gold price rebounded, then the bitcoin price would test 8600 or 8850 resistance. Keep watching at the Fed beige book and U.S. retail sales data for September tonight. If bearish US dollar and Dow future, cryptocurrencies mostly upward.
