March NFP: forecasts and opinions

March NFP: forecasts and opinions

Today the US nonfarm payroll data will be reported that could  cause fluctuations of the market. However, this information won’t reveal the real state of affairs in the USA as it’s based on the survey held during  the first two weeks of March, just before the huge impact of the virus outbreak.

Anyway, it’s commonly believed that the US labor market more or less collapsed. Most banks make their predictions on how much payrolls will drop: Commonwealth Bank of Australia - 200,000, Goldman Sachs – 180,000. MarketWatch economists predict a range from an increase of 100,000 to a loss of 700,000 jobs. Moreover, April NFP data is expected to be far worse. You can see below the US nonfarm payrolls from March 2019 to February 2020.

Analysts anticipate the unemployment rate to rise to 3.8-4%. However, it won’t reflect the real deterioration of the US labor market. According to the Fed, the US unemployment could increase to 15% as economy is enormously suffering from the coronavirus.
