  • Despite the bullish reaction in the Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar to the better-than-expected ADP Employment & ISM Manufacturing survey, the greenback may continue to consolidate in the days ahead as it remains stuck in the triangle/wedge formation from April.
  • Even though market participants anticipate another 230K expansion in U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) along with a downtick in the jobless rate, may need a very strong employment report to spur a breaking in the USDOLLAR as market participants continue to mull the Fed liftoff.
