We got some Tier 1 US data coming up this week, with CPI on Wednesday, PPI and FOMC meeting minutes on Thursday. The U.S. employment report last Friday was unexpectedly weak, with 194,000 jobs added in September, well below the monthly average of 561,000. The unemployment rate declined for the third straight month dropping from 5.2% to 4.8%. The report also showed a persistent increase in wage growth. U.S. Treasury bond rallied to 1.61% today, highlighting the inflationary pressure. Investors expect the Federal Reserve to tighten its policy as early as November.


The USD dropped marginally due to the extended debt ceiling, crisis averted. U.S. equity dropped after the release of the weaker-than-expected U.S. labour reports. The commodity market rebounded sharply following the recent selloff as sully chain shortage and rising price are causing concern among investors.


The resurgence of COVID-19 hit Singapore and new daily cases raised to a record of 2809. Singapore tightened its restrictions and it is not opening up even its vaccination level exceeds the opening condition – 80%. Singapore may keep its limited travel and social distancing until 2024.
