The AUD Awaits Australian Job Data
What will happen?
Australia will release employment change and an unemployment rate on July 15, at 04:30 MT time. These indicators are very important because they provide the freshest update of the situation in the Australian labor market. The employment change represents the change in the number of employed people during the previous month, and the unemployment rate measures the percentage of the total workforce that is unemployed. Last time, the indicators came out higher than the forecasts. The employment change was up by 115.2K (vs. the forecast of 30.5K), and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.1%, below the expectations of 5.5%.
