With betting on more reopening, the market collapsed in many areas and rose in many others. ADP`s jobs figures and the ISM Services PMI will be in the spotlight today. Commodities are on the rise while cryptocurrencies are stable.
In the FX market, DXY gained momentum as Mrs. Yellen started the Howkish tone in the market, talking about the likely need to raise interest rates.

As we are entering to warmer season and vaccination progress going well in the US, UK, Europe, and China, most of them either opened the borders for tourists or preparing for that. That`s why we are waiting for the upbeat Service sector to recover much better than previous months and get closer to the Manufacturing industry, which has already been rising. It will help the composite numbers to grow. ADP`s private-sector labor market numbers are also expected to increase 872,000 in April, which means 517,000 positions more than the March report.
