EU Session Bullet Report – USD trades steady ahead of NFP

1

USD is trading stable against all pairs ahead of the long awaited NFP report today. Last week, Janet Yellen said that “if the incoming information supports that expectation then our statement indicates that December would be a live possibility” in regards to raising interest rates for the first time in a decade. NFP data should support the view or not. Currently there is a 58% probability that the FED will raise rates in December but that can all change depending on the news this afternoon.

Economists expect the report to show 180k jobs created in the US in October, up from last month’s 142k. Prior employment data this week, suggest for a strong report today.

Yesterday the GBPUSD was the weakest currency, and is currently posting new lows at 1.5188. BoE forecasted a lower growth and inflation target, despite upbeat economic data lately in the UK.

On the data front, Germany will release industrial production. UK will release industrial and manufacturing production and trade balance. US will release NFP and Canada will release both employment and building permits.

Trading Quote of the Day:

“In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable.”
