Keep Your Eye On US Jobs Report
The most important event will be US Non-Farm Payrolls today. It will be announced at 13:30 p.m. (GMT) and the Jobs Report is a significant determinant of Fed rate hike in December 12-13 meeting. The greenback appreciated against a basket of major currencies on this week, thanks to a renewed sense of optimism on US tax reforms. Other bullish factors that boosted the dollar higher included the eased concerns over a possible government shut-down in the US, for now, the approval for the Fed Chair nominee Powel and the aggressively progressed negotiations between the House and the Senate. Additionally, next week brings the Fed with what is widely expected to be the bank third hike this year. The ADP Non-Farm Employment Change data was released last Wednesday and it rose to 190K from 185K a month ago. November US Non-Farm Payrolls is expected to 200K jobs created after rising 261K the previous month. Unemployment Rate is expected to remain flat at 4.1% compared to 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 0.0% a previous month. A rate hike looks all but fully priced in for this month’s FOMC meeting. However, an upbeat employment report will point to an improving economy and support the case for higher interest rates in 2018.
