ADP Employment Change Slight Miss Ahead of Non-Farm Payrolls

ADP Employment Change Slight Miss Ahead of Non-Farm Payrolls

Gregory Marks,

Talking Points:

-US ADP Employment figures for March come in at 191K vs. 195K surveyed

-February figures are revised up from 139K to 178K

-US Non-Farm Payrolls data to be released on Friday at 12:30GMT (8:30EDT)

The March ADP Employment Change figures out of U.S. came in just below 195K expectations at 191K while the February print had a healthy revision from 139K to 178K. Price action remained limited in USD pairs and as usual we saw a 10 pip move to the upside in USD/JPY at the release. Although the headline figure for March missed, the upward revision for February is a supportive sign moving into US Non-Farm Payrolls on Friday.
