04 August 2017 US Non-Farm Payrolls
We will view the Non-Farm Payrolls from the US today. It will be announced at 12:30 p.m. (GMT) and the Jobs Report is a significant determinant of Fed rate hike in September.
The Fed has already done to raise rates two times. The Fed declared one more rate hike this year. However, they are looking for job growth to accelerate, wages to rise and unemployment to either hold steady or improve.
The ADP Non-Farm Employment Change data was released last Wednesday. It was at 178K which is softer realization than expected in July.
Non-Farm Payrolls is expected to decline to 183k from 222k a month ago and Unemployment Rate is expected to come out at 4.3%, better than a month ago. Average hourly earnings will be another release to be followed closely at the same time and are expected to rise to 0.3%, from a previous month.
We have noted that July is generally a very good month for the EUR/USD and GOLD. While it may seem like the euro has moved up quite a bit already this month. Any realization better than market consensus today may support DXY and US bond yields.
EURUSD: The EURUSD pair is still trading above the 1.1812 support level. In the event that the price stays above 1.1812. the bullish action may continue. However, in order for the profit taking action to start, it needs to break and remain below 1.1812. At this point, the support levels will be at 1.1768 and 1.1720.

GOLD: The Gold price is trading below the key resistance level of 1272. In the event that the rise continues, we will face resistance levels 1272 and 1276. In order for the bullish action to gain more momentum, it needs to go beyond 1276 and remain above that level on a daily basis. Otherwise, If the price shows a downward movement, we will face again 1266 and 1255 as support levels.
Support: 1266 – 1256 – 1250 Resistance: 1272 – 1276 – 1283
