Thanks for posting these @Caseynotes

I use my own dashboard which I have built in Excel with streaming prices from IG (using my Add-in).

It gives me a quick visual overview of various markets (Excel data-bars are brilliant!), I can see that stocks are down, fx flat, oil down etc and how markets have moved comparatively.

I can also see where markets are now compared to their high-low (range) today which I find quite useful.

@andysinclair, brilliant, looks good and easy to see at a glance what's going on.

Always useful to have a gauge as to what the overall market situation is as to whether the feeling is for risk on or risk off but it's also useful to see which markets are moving and which are flat. If a market is active I'd expect it to continue to be active regardless of direction til proved otherwise and same for flat markets.

So combine the two (active/flat & risk on/off) and you can narrow down particular markets of interest and likely direction.

Overnight Indices up, Bonds, Oil and Gold down. See Ger indy production (m/m) just came in at minus 1.7% instead of the plus 0.1% expected but Dax doesn't seem to care, it knows it's future is tied up with the US data.

US NFP day today at 1:30pm and 180k expected, don't forget the ADP nfp on Wednesday came in at a big miss of only 67k v 137 expected.

UK GDP data at 9:30. The high vol event today is the Ger econ sentiment (survey of expectations by institutional investors) at 10am and here is listed as expected at 0.0 though other sites list plus 1.1 which would be only the second positive since March 2018.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
