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!

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.

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.

    • unbelievable. Maybe this is why they lost the sub contract...
    • Market data to trade on Friday: GBP/USD; Brent UK retail sales are the focal point for Friday’s session and as such, IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at GBP/USD. Then there’s consumer confidence in the States which, if strong, could take the Russell 2000 back up to a record high. https://www.ig.com/uk/market-insight-articles/market-data-to-trade-on-friday--gbp-usd--brent-210916
