USD PMI news came out better than expected, but dollar continues to get pounded by demand for the euro. Analysts expecting a correction coming soon after the pair gained the most it's ever done in the last decade. Correlation with US market and EU pair is fairly similar.
England expects some extended aid from the government as schools will soon be open again. US Congress is still struggling to negotiate a relief deal between the Republicans and Democrats. Bank of England will have a conference tomorrow discussing monetary policy and economic outlook for the country.

According to Baystreet, investors are starting to sell stocks and buy the USD as a safe haven trade. Although the dollar index (DXY) is falling, sentiment on the USD is starting to turn around.

Yesterday, Aussie had big news on keeping their cash rate the same which seemed to hurt the pair as a false breakout occurred on the 4H chart. Thursday will bring AUD monetary policy report which will discuss forward looking statements and economic outlook. Swiss news came out on PMI data which proved worse than expected at 49. Under 50 is a sign of economic contraction. So the news on AUD tomorrow could show us the direction the pair wants to move this week and next. We're still feeling neutral about the pair as we wait for a direction to be decided.

We are holding short biases on both currencies but recent news could turn prices lower.
The US expected there to be 1.4 million jobs added in July, but a mere 167,000 were added to payrolls. Warren Buffett's famous indicator that has historically been a precursor to crashes spiked again as most of Buffett's capital sits dormant. Delays on the new stimulus bill are causing concern amongst most Americans because unemployment is still very high. However, this earnings season has brought some strong numbers as well as mixed ones. The fact that the market is getting bought up looks like big money is gearing for a sell off, or a take-profit point. Although corrections are inevitable in the stock market, it's difficult to say when.
Gold breaks out to reach an all-time-high over 2000. one analysts compared the surge in price to the bitcoin boom in 2017. Gold truly does seem to be the bitcoin of the older generation, but buyer's euphoria never lasts forever. We have been long term bulls on gold for some time, but this move was too great and too fast. We were hoping to see a nice pullback to the 3-year high at 1917, but price never reached that level. After gold broke out of the 4H resistance, it's now showing signs of weakness in the short term. New support at 1980s.
