NFPs are expected at 220k on Fri. Expecting it to be a 200k+ read again and with major upward revisions to Aug numbers historically, this could be USD bullish.

Hi ,

 

In July 215,000 jobs were added, down from 223,000 (revised from 231,000) added during June, while employment remained unchanged at 5.3%. 

 

Would you be confident enough in having a guess to the nearest thousand as to what the figure will be this time around?

 

, , or any other members, do you have an opinion this month? The closest guess to the nearest thousand will be the Non-farm payroll Champion of the month, and I'll hand the award out on Friday afternoon!

Well below expectations indeed . 

 

 was slightly closer though with his prediction, and takes the coveted Non farm payroll Champion of the month.

 

Until next time...

I wont give a guess as to the actual figure that is released today. However, I pulled up a few historical charts to look at previous price performance.

Note the last three periods, the forecasts have not been met.

 

Looking at the Dow Jones, I have captured below some images of the hourly chart at the point the data is released.

Over the last few months the typical reaction has been a temporary sell-off, followed by resumption of the upward trend. I am keen to follow this month and see how it unravels.

 

You may want to use the hashtag #NFP or #NFPGUESSES on Twitter or social media if you are interested, this figure can create quite a stir in the markets.

Go on, having a guess wont hurt you and there used to be a forum badge for being closest. Though probably the Average Hourly Earnings figure will count more as to whether there will be a rate hike or not from the FOMC data release on Wednesday (13th) unless the NFP figure is devastating.

NFP today  1:30 pm, a reasonable sized beat on yesterday's ADP nfp figure may hint at a high figure today and if average earnings is good should strengthen the dollar, which looks cheap, and divert money away from Dow, which looks expensive (all time high yesterday).

 

If this scenario were to play out the knock on affect would likely bring the eurusd down along with ftse and dax.

    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
