Australia will release the level of employment change and unemployment rate on August 15, at 4:30 MT time.
The level of employment change shows the number of people employed during the previous month. The unemployment change, in its turn, is the percentage of the unemployed workforce. Last time the indicator of employment change rose only by 0.5K people (vs. the forecast of 9.1K). The unemployment change came out in line with the forecast at 5.2%. The Australian dollar ignored the negative figures of employment change and got higher. Let's see how the release will affect the currency this time.
• If employment change is higher and the unemployment rate is lower than the forecasts, the AUD will rise;
• If employment change is lower and the unemployment rate is higher than the forecasts, the AUD will fall.
