Information is not investment advice
The levels of employment change and the unemployment rate for Australia are expected on April 18, at 4:30 MT time.
Job creation is an important indicator, which is connected to consumer spending. The more people are employed, the more money they can spend. Last time the level of employment change came out much lower than the expectations (4.6K vs 14.8K). At the same time, the unemployment rate fell to 4.9%. Let's see if the indicators support the Australian currency this time.
• If the employment change is higher and the unemployment rate is lower than the forecasts, the aussie will rise;
• If the employment change is lower and the unemployment rate is higher than the forecasts, the aussie will fall.
The market sentiment deteriorated amid increasing virus cases in the USA and Australia. Investors prefer safe-haven assets like gold, the US dollar and the Japanese yen.
The Reserve Bank of Australia will publish its statement and announce the interest rate on July 7, at 7:30 MT time.
The overall market sentiment was mixed after the USA recorded the largest increase in virus cases since May 9. The data even offset the better-than-expected NFP.
