Good morning traders, it’s payrolls day again.
The U.S. jobs report will shape expectations about when the Federal Reserve might start tapering its stimulus and when to expect a rate hike. Since this is a highly awaited event risk, we will prepare for bigger moves amid possibly extreme volatility.
We saw the U.S. dollar holding a drop ahead of today’s report and going into the release, the greater impact seems to come from a stronger reading that spurs bullish momentum in the dollar. Should the reading disappoint the forecast for a 750,000 jobs increase, the greenback will further depreciate.
Looking at the EUR/USD, however, even in case of a weaker payrolls number, the rise of the euro might be limited as the pair remains overbought with a correction overdue.
The GBP/USD broke above 1.3830 and next targets could be at 1.3860 and 1.3880 but it’s the same situation as the EUR/USD: Both pairs look overbought and thus, chances are in favor of a greater impact for USD strength in case of an upbeat NFP report.
We wish everyone good trades and a beautiful weekend.
