NFP: prepare to trade on the news

NFP: prepare to trade on the news

NFP (US nonfarm payrolls) is an important indicator of consumer spending that accounts for the majority of overall economic activity. If there are more employed people, consumer spending will increase supporting the US economy. US labor market figures will be released at 15:30 MT time on June 1
Average Hourly Earnings’ data will be out at the same time as NFP. Average Hourly Earnings is the earliest data related to labor inflation. A rise of the data means higher salaries and as a result greater spending. 
The greenback is strongly recovering. The US dollar index has already reached highs of December 2017. For the further movement upwards it needs an additional support of the US Federal Reserve. The market anticipates two additional rate hikes this year. The Fed is anticipated to raise the interest rate at its June meeting. Encouraging economic data will increase chances of a rate hike. 
  • If the data is greater than the forecast, the USD will set new records.

  • If the data is weaker than the forecast, the USD will go down.
