Investors will be looking for additional EU stimulus plans and maybe for a revision of its inflation base targets, following the FED policy on inflation near term.

Gold and Silver are trading marginally higher on the weaker dollar, Gold is trading at $1,949 per ounce, up 0.25% and Silver trades at $26.96 per ounce, up 0.68%. Oil reversed lower again this morning ahead of the Inventories numbers set to be released today at 11:00 am, after a survey showed an increase in US stockpiles of 3 million barrels, versus expectations of a decrease of 1.4 million barrels. That’s another red flag for crude demand near term, as investors fear the increase in coronavirus cases will have a negative effect on prices near term. Oil is trading at $37.36 per barrel this morning, down 1.76%.  

The ECB Rate Statement and Press Conference starting at 7:45 am, US Unemployment Claims at 8:30 am and Oil Inventories at 11:00 am are the important news on the agenda Thursday, (all times EST).
