Daily Forex Preview – 08/12

The Greenback got a fresh boost to its rally with a better than expected jobs report for November. The US economy reportedly added 321k new jobs, the highest in the past years while unemployment rate was stable at 5.8%. The sub components of the employment report such as the average hourly earnings also ticked higher, with the exception of the underemployment rate. The numbers saw the Greenback break above the key resistance level of 89.2.

German factory orders beat estimates rising 2.5% but the Euro was little changed in the run up to the NFP data. EURUSD declined to previous day’s lows of 1.23 but managed to bounce back from the support level.

Canadian jobs data was disappointing as the employment change saw a decline of -10.7k with the unemployment rate ticking higher as expected to 6.6%.

In today’s Asian session, Japan’s revised GDP numbers saw the third quarter GDP fall below estimates of -0.5% vs. -0.1%

The economic calendar for today is relatively light with focus on the German factory orders and the Eurozone Sentix investor confidence.
