The US NFP: What’s New?

The US NFP: What’s New?

Information is not investment advice

What will happen?

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics will announce average hourly earnings, nonfarm employment change (NFP), and the unemployment rate on July 8, at 15:30 MT time. These data are published monthly, usually on the first Friday of the month. Due to its seasonality, average hourly earnings and nonfarm payrolls don’t include the farming industry. The unemployment rate is a key indicator of overall economic health that helps analysts assess the US economic situation.

How can the USD react?

The last release showed that the US economy added 390,000 jobs. It’s better than expected, despite fears of economic growth slowdown and soaring inflation. At the same time, the unemployment rate remained at 3.6%, just above the lowest level since December 1969.

These numbers made the greenback strengthen. GBPUSD fell 471 points. It’s -0.38%. If you traded one lot there, your income could be $471.

How to trade on the US NFP release?

If NFP is higher than expected, the USD will rise. If NFP is lower than expected, the USD will fall. The unemployment rate situation is the opposite: the lower the indicator, the better for the US currency.

  • If actual numbers of NFP beat expectations, then the USD will go up.
  • Otherwise, it will fall.

FED and BOE Make Another Attempt to Beat Inflation

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
