Get Ready For US Nonfarm Payrolls This Week
EUR/USD: The US dollar began the last quarter of 2021 near its highest levels of the year and its best week since June, as currency markets braced for U.S. interest rates to rise before those of major peers.
The expectations are raising for a tapering of Federal Reserve stimulus from November and a possible interest rate hike in late 2022.
Last week, the final revision of U.S. growth for the second quarter returned a surprise 0.1% increase over the prior reading of 6.6%.
Moreover, US Personal income increased $35.5 billion (0.2 percent) in August according to estimates released last week by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The PCE price index increased 0.4 percent. Excluding food and energy, the PCE price index increased 0.3 percent.
In the upcoming week, the US Jobs Report will be announced on Friday. US Nonfarm Payrolls are expected to rise 460K in September from 235K in the previous month. The Unemployment Rate is expected to drop to 5.1% from 5.2%. Average hourly earnings are expected to come out 4.6%, year on a year basis.
In addition to that, this week's calendar also features U.S. data on Services PMI, ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI, as well as Factory Orders.
US ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI for August is expected to ease to 60.0 from 61.7. A better-than-expected realization may provide some support for the US Dollar.
