On October 1, Beijing time, the ISM manufacturing index of the United States in September was 55.4, which was lower than the expected 56.5 and the previous value of 56.5. Personal income fell the largest in three months in August, and the number of people who applied for unemployment benefits for the first time last week was still far higher than that before the epidemic. Affected by the US data downturn, the international oil price fell by more than 5% on the same day, and the US oil WTI lost US $38. In response, Yide futures analyst Chen Tong said that according to the data released by the U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA) on Wednesday, US crude oil inventories dropped unexpectedly by 2 million barrels last week for the third consecutive week. Lingering demand related concerns eased the markets concerns about the trend of supply tightening.
At present, investors in the crude oil market have been paying close attention to the spread of the new coronavirus, which may have an adverse impact on crude oil demand as the economy stagnates. With the number of novel coronavirus pneumonia cases rising in the world, Europe is implementing or planning to re implement new social restrictive measures.

Meanwhile, the dollar index plunged in the afternoon of Asian trading on October 2. According to wind data, as of 13:46 Beijing time on the 2nd, the rise of the US dollar index narrowed to 0.05% to 93.7814. Earlier, the US dollar index rose more than 0.3% to above the 94 mark. As for the future trend of the dollar, Peter Schiff, a senior Wall Street prophet, pointed out in his report that the dollar is a mirror image of precious metals and stocks - the dollar rose in September, but fell in the quarter.
The dollar index rose nearly 2% in September, but fell 3.5% at the end of the quarter. As a result, all assets showed a negative trend in September, with good performance in the quarter, declining in the month, and vice versa, while bonds were relatively stable. Peter Schiff still expects interest rates to rise sharply and bond prices to fall accordingly.
Although the stock market fell sharply in late September, it rose in the quarter. In fact, everything was up in the third quarter, because of the Fed. The Fed has pledged to keep interest rates low and continues to drive stock market gains through debt monetization. Gold rose about 6 per cent in the third quarter, despite a sharp sell-off in September. Silver suffered the most last month, falling about 18 per cent. But even so, silver prices rose about 27 percent in the quarter and beat all major stock indexes. Looking forward to the future, Peter Schiff believes that for the dollar, the dollar is expected to fall by 35 per cent in the fourth quarter by the end of 2021. If the dollar index falls 35 per cent, it will only barely remain above 60. The historical low of the dollar index was the top 70 level in 2008.
