Last week was very interesting for the markets, as we saw the releases of the US Inflation and Disney’s earnings report. So let's see what we should await this week!
US Nonfarm Payrolls
|Nonfarm payrolls or NFP is a monthly change in the number of employed people. It is the significant indicator of business health and, as a result, the whole economic activity in the United States. That is why traders pay high attention to it. The US dollar needs additional rate hikes this year, so a positive reading of the indicator will increase chances of the Federal Reserve raising interest rates. Look at an economic calendar at 15:30 MT time on May 4. If the data is positive, the US dollar will rise.|
The United States will publish the Preliminary GDP on Thursday, May 26, at 15:30 GMT+3.
The Reserve Bank of New Zealand will publish a monetary policy report and make an update on the interest rate on May 25, at 05:00 GMT+3.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics will announce the updated Unemployment Rate and Employment Change data on Thursday, May 19, at 04:30 MT.
