A Huge Week For Trading: Focus On US Non-Farm Payrolls
The Euro extended losses versus the US Dollar after the releases of strong US economic data last week.
Third-quarter economic growth was revised up to an annualized 2.1% from the first reading of 1.9%. The data was in contrast to other indicators showing a slowdown in global activity. In a separate report, durable goods gained 0.6% after falling 1.4% in the prior month.
U.S. President Donald Trump approved two bills that backs Hong Kong’s anti-government protestors. While China has vowed to retaliate, it has not taken any action so far and it is unclear if that would have any bearing on trade talks. However, Most Economists think, Trump's signing of the HK bill will not derail a US-China trade deal.
On the other hand, European Consumer Price Index picked up to 1.0% from a three-year low of 0.7% in October, beating expectations for a 0.9% reading, but remains far below ECB's target.
In the upcoming week, all eyes will be on Eurozone GDP Number and US Jobs Report.
The Eurozone GDP is expected to come out at 0.2% q-o-q growth as the same as the previous number. This would lead to an annual realization of 1.2%. A better than expected realization may support EURUSD.
Watch out for the US Non-Farm Payrolls this Friday. US Nonfarm Payrolls is expected to see 180K jobs created after rising 128K the previous month. The Unemployment Rate is expected to stay at 3.6%. Average hourly earnings will also be significant and are expected to be 0.3% which is higher than the previous month's number of 0.2%. An upbeat employment report will point to an improving US economy and support the greenback.
