The push by US President Trump towards reopening and the positive US/EU reaction will be key for investors near term as markets deal with a bleak economic environment and an unclear recovery path.

The sterling and euro are weak this morning while the JPY is trading at 3-month highs versus the dollar. Gold is at $1,698 per ounce this morning, up 0.57% on the move to “safety” while Silver up 0.99% and trading at $15.15 per ounce. Oil is trading at 2-week highs $26.4 per barrel, up 12.3%, busted by positive China export news and expectation for some demand recovery after some markets already opened and for OPEC+ production cuts to affect inventories near term as well as expectations for US production cuts near term.

US Unemployment Claims at 1:30 pm and ECB President Lagarde speech at 3:00 pm are the important news on the agenda Thursday, (all times GMT).
