The November NFP data surprised to the upside yet again and the October figure was revised higher, stressing that the US labor market continues to show signs of great resilience despite tightening financial conditions. Something that may be of concern to Fed members is the month on month and year on year rise in average hourly wage growth however, this tends to result from the fact that employees have greater bargaining power when there aren’t many people waiting to fulfil vacant posts. Companies therefore, acquiesce to higher wage demands which is why the Fed views a modest job growth slowdown in a favorable light.

IMMEDIATE REACTION FROM SELECTED MARKETS

 

US Dollar Index (DXY) 5- Min Chart

The dollar index has sold off in recent trading sessions as the market bought into the idea of a lower terminal rate and a slower pace of rate hikes to come. It is against this back drop that the better than expected NFP data has sent the dollar higher as the repricing adjustment takes place. The extent to which the stellar jobs report can lead to a prolonged rise in DXY back to the high, remains unlikely as we get closer to the end of the rate hiking cycle.

US 10 Year Treasury Yield 5- Min Chart

Understandable, the US 10 year yield rose, as traders assess the likelihood that market positioning failed to fully take into account the possibility of a higher jobs print and the validity behind Jerome Powell's 'higher for longer' comments which appear a distant memory now.

Gold has been on a phenomenal run since bouncing higher from levels near the September low. The NFP print appears to have reinforces the key 1800 psychological level of resistance. The stronger dollar and rise in yields renders gold a relatively less attractive choice at these levels and perhaps offers long traders with an opportunity to partially or fully reduce exposure.

    • What is Foreign Exchange? Foreign exchange (Forex or FX) is the conversion of one currency into another at a specific rate known as the foreign exchange rate. The conversion rates for almost all currencies are constantly floating as they are driven by the market forces of supply and demand. The most traded currencies in the world are the United States dollar, Euro, Japanese yen, British pound, and Australian dollar. The US dollar remains the key currency, accounting for more than 87% of total daily value traded.Factors that Affect Foreign Exchange Rates Many factors can potentially influence the market forces behind foreign exchange rates. The factors include various economic, political, and even psychological conditions. The economic factors include a government’s economic policies, trade balances, inflation, and economic growth outlook. Political conditions also exert a significant impact on the forex rate, as events such as political instability and political conflicts may negatively affect the strength of a currency. The psychology of forex market participants can also influence exchange rates. The Foreign Exchange Market The foreign exchange market is a decentralized and over-the-counter market where all currency exchange trades occur. It is the largest (in terms of trading volume) and the most liquid market in the world. On average, the daily volume of transactions on the forex market totals $5.1 trillion, according to the Bank of International Settlements’ Triennial Central Bank Survey (2016). The forex market major trading centers are located in major financial hubs around the world, including New York, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Sydney. Due to this reason, foreign exchange transactions are executed 24 hours, five days a week (except weekends). Despite the decentralized nature of forex markets, the exchange rates offered in the market are the same among its participants, as arbitrage opportunities can arise otherwise. The foreign exchange market is probably one of the most accessible financial markets. Market participants range from tourists and amateur traders to large financial institutions (including central banks) and multinational corporations. Also, the forex market does not only involve a simple conversion of one currency into another. Many large transactions in the market involve the application of a wide variety of financial instruments, including forwards, swaps, options, etc. Foreign currency exchange (forex) A foreign currency exchange rate is a price that represents how much it costs to buy the currency of one country using the currency of another country. Currency traders buy and sell currencies through forex transactions based on how they expect currency exchange rates will fluctuate. When the value of one currency rises relative to another, traders will earn profits if they purchased the appreciating currency, or suffer losses if they sold the appreciating currency.
