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.
