Australian Job Data Will Impact AUD

Australian Job Data Will Impact AUD

What will happen?

Australia will release employment change and an unemployment rate on Thursday, November 11, at 02:30 MT (GMT+2). The employment change shows how many Australians were employed during the previous month, while the unemployment rate measures the total workforce that is unemployed.

Why is it important?

These indicators are significant as they give the most relevant information about the Australian labor market. In addition to the direct impact (more jobs are good/fewer jobs are bad), the Reserve Bank of Australia bases its policy decisions on the jobs data. The strong data may force the RBA to tighten the policy earlier than initially thought, which would push the AUD up.

Last time, the data was mixed. The employment change was down by 138K (vs. the forecast of -108.5K), and the unemployment rate was 4.6%, beating expectations of 4.8%. AUD/JPY jumped briefly but then dropped by 148 points.
