Overnight Changes in Major Currencies (9am PST)

 

United States (US): U.S. Consumer Confidence Deteriorates Amid Uncertainty About Outlook

The CSI is now down sharply from the final February reading of 101.0, reflecting the fourth largest one-month decline in nearly a half-century. CCI decreased to a reading of 120.0 this month, the lowest since July 2017, from an upwardly revised 132.6 in February. That together, with a wave of layoffs caused by the coronavirus business shutdowns, suggests the unemployment rate likely increased this month from 3.5% in February. Labor market strength was the economy’s main pillar of support, through steady wage growth and consumer spending. The percentage of consumers expecting an increase in income declined to 20.7% this month from 22.7% in February and the proportion anticipating a drop rose to 8.8% from 6.1%. 03/31/2020 – 06:34 AM (RTTNews)

United Kingdom (UK): Q4 GDP Remains Flat 

British Pound traded at 1.2427 against USD at 9:00 am PST. 
 
The UK economy logged a flat growth in Q4, as growth in services was offset by production and construction output. GDP remained unchanged on quarter, after expanding 0.5 % in Q3. Services output increased 0.2 %, while production output fell 0.7 % driven by declines in manufacturing and mining and quarrying. Construction output decreased 0.1 % in Q4.  The expenditure-side breakdown of GDP showed that household spending registered nil growth and gross fixed capital formation declined 1.2 %. Meanwhile, government consumption and trade added to growth. Driven by education and health, government spending grew 1.5 %. The UK posted a trade surplus of 1.4 % of nominal GDP in Q4. The current account deficit narrowed substantially to GBP 5.6 billion, or 1.0 % of GDP in Q4. 03/31/2020 – 02:34 AM (Pound Sterling Live)
