  • - Forward guidance is a commitment not to raise rates - There is still a long way to go until full recovery
  • - BoC is accelerating work on digital currency - Decision on digital currency would be the government's
  • With the BOC's update today, I'd shift the group to being the most hawkish relative to the other major central banks. Still the setting for all of the majors is very dovish though. All relative. https://t.co/3MQX5ILGzA
Aussie Jumps on Unexpected Rise in Employment Figures

Aussie Jumps on Unexpected Rise in Employment Figures

Eric Andersen,

THE TAKEAWAY: Australian Employment Figures Feature Unexpected Boost > Unemployment Falls, Aided by Large Increase in Part Time Employment > AUDUSD Jumps

Aussie_Jumps_on_Unexpected_Rise_in_Employment_Figures_body_Picture_5.png, Aussie Jumps on Unexpected Rise in Employment Figures

Employment data published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics show an increase of 46,300 jobs in the Aussie economy, causing the unemployment rate to drop from 5.2 percent to 5.1 percent. Both full time and part time work figures increased. The former added 12,300 positions to payroll; the latter, 34,000. The overall participation rate increased to 65.3 percent from 65.2 percent a month earlier.

Analysts expected the unemployment rate to rise this month and a modest increase in total employment driven by a small rise in part time work. Neither analysts nor the markets expected an improvement of such magnitude this month, and traders were forced to price in the change, boosting the AUDUSD upward.

The Aussie had been trending downward throughout the day, and trading immediately following the employment report’s release shows buying pressure providing the currency a respite.
