- Precious metals get their tails up following the disappointing September jobs number, with gold and silver moving from slightly in the red to higher by more than 1%. After falling to almost $1,250 per ounce last week, gold is back to $1,329. GLD +1%, SLV +1.5% premarket.
- The dollar slips across the board. UUP -0.25% premarket. Up 0.4% vs, the dollar currently, the aussie (FXA) is particularly noteworthy. It suffered a brutal bear market this spring and summer, falling from $1.06 all the way to about $0.88 amid worries about a slowdown at home and in major customer China. It's been heading higher since around Labor Day, however, as the RBA signals a pause in its monetary easing campaign and as the growth outlook for China becomes less dour.
