    The market went up in the past years whenever there was a drop in average hourly earnings...but there was no trade war talk back then.

    Thanks for the very knowledgeable explanation on the NFP post. I'm a ML guy trying to get into this field, but I lack the economic knowledge and intuition. I am now looking into developing a reinforcement learning automatic trading algo to trade the major US indices. Could you please point me to some resources to fill in these gaps I have regarding the macro economic calendar news? Thanks :)

    US March Jobs Report: yawn. The headline grabber here is that the Nonfarm Payrolls Change missed badly with a +103k print vs. +185k expected and that the net revision to the prior two months' data was an ugly -50k. But if we average the last two data points (the February data revised up to +326k) we have a two-month average of over 200k. As much of the data going into this monthly report is assumed and massaged, this fails to have much significance, especially given other strong job market indicators elsewhere. The more important data point was the Average Hourly Earnings, which were in-line with expectations and still see earnings growth above 2.5%. All in all, tough to see any strong market takeaways on this in Fed expectations or USD terms, though equity traders might be emboldened by the lack of inflationary worries from this report.

    Next key USD-linked event risks are next Wednesday's US Mar. CPI (core expected at +2.1% YoY) and FOMC minutes, also up on Wednesday.

    FOMC meeting: Fed raises rates and steepens the path of expected rate hikes for 2020 in dot plot, but not for the 2018 time frame. The longer term "terminal rate" seen relatively unchanged. The wording of the statement sees minor changes, with a small downgrade to observations for current state of economy, but confident sounding on eventual path. In accompanying materials, GDP forecast for 2018 and 2019 revised a bit higher, as was PCE core for 2019 and 2020 (to 2.1% from 2.0%). More to follow on market reaction -see comparison of statements (January to March) attached.

    It seems Mr. Hansen is right in his chart. Hike means Gold growth.

    not just the USD behaves the same as after the last Fed meeting, but all US indices look awfully similar to right before the correction

    What I see from the dot plot is there is almost same probability of 3 and 4 rate hikes for the year. There's visible shift to slightly...
