Traders await NFP
US Non-Farm Employment Change, also known as Nonfarm Payrolls or NFP, will be released on February 1 at 15:30 MT time.
The indicator shows how many jobs were created in the United States during the last month. It’s released together with the unemployment rate and the average hourly earnings indicators. All 3 of these indicators have a great impact on the USD.The last time, on January 4, NFP came out at 312K (higher, than the forecast of 179K), and wage growth accelerated to 0.4% (this is the change in average earnings index). Traders bought the US currency on the news, and the USD was supported.
• If the NFP is greater than expected, the USD will go up.
• If the NFP is weaker than expected, the USD will go down.
The US dollar index breaks one resistance after another. Read the report to learn the next target for the US dollar index!
