ATFX Market Outlook, 2019 July 5

Personal opinions today:

U.S. non-farm payrolls and jobs report for June release today , the market focus on these data results. Since the US ADP payroll just 100,000, estimate the U.S. non-farm payrolls lower as well. But the market expected the US non-farm payrolls lower, just depends how lower. If the number of the non-farm payrolls below 200,000 means a slowing labor market and a slowing economic activity, which has the potential to deflation. The market prepared to cut interest rates by the end of the month. Suppose, today, the US non-farm payrolls were above 100,000 in June, if close to market expectations of 160,000. The unemployment rate keeps at 3.6%, and more importantly, the average hourly wages could keep rising. It believes it can change the market expectation and Fed rate may not cut, lead the dollar higher.

The release of the U.S. jobs data, depending on the results and market expectations of the difference, may affect the level of federal reserve interest rates and price fluctuations by the U.S. Treasury bonds price, the market prices are volatile. Please note that the market price may not be a fixed quotation and failed to deal with the current market price, please note!
