Valutrades Market Blast :: 5 July 2019


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast special look at the US Non-Farm Payrolls.

5 July 2019


Yesterday was a holiday in the US so markets were quiet and we can see some consolidation.

The forecast for the NFPs is 165K new jobs and a number below this will cause the USD to weaken and a number above this will cause the USD to strengthen.

A typical strategy with any Economic News Event is to take advantage of countertrend price action.

For example, we are currently seeing Dollar weakness on AUDUSD, USDCHF, NZDUSD and USDJPY.

If you are currently trading with the trend, then a lower NFP figure will help your trade.

A higher number may temporarily give us a countertrend move and, in the case of NZDUSD we will look for price to retreat to a key level and bounce before buying again.

In the case of USDJPY, we will look for a return and bounce off this key level or a bounce off this upper trend line.

The same may be said for USDCAD but be careful.

Canadian Employment figures will be released at the same time and contrary figures may produce a secondary reaction and figures similar to the US figures may produce very volatile price action.

That’s all for now. We will see you Monday for Valutrades’ Market Blast Fundamentals.
