US Payrolls Threatens to Shake Up EURUSD, Yen Crosses, Gold

US Payrolls Threatens to Shake Up EURUSD, Yen Crosses, Gold

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

  • A choppy but persistent rebound in 'risk' trends will be put to the test by US NFPs Friday
  • Emerging markets are generally following risk themes, but the Brazilian Real and Indian Rupee are on their own pace
  • Gold offers a break with questionable pedigree while US Oil prices fail to make anything of a tech break

See how retail traders are positioning in the majors ahead of the NFPs - and after its release - on DailyFX or bring the figures to your charts using the FXCM SSI snapshot.

These are the kinds of pre-event market conditions that can stoke volatility for both risk and opporunity. The advance in US and global equities - as it has with other sentiment-driven assets - slowed through the week after an impressive climb. Meanwhile, the Dollar took a last nasty spill to remind us of the market's severe doubt that the Federal Reserve will be able to follow up on December's liftoff with another hike this year. The stage is set for a NFPs release that has an asymmetrical opportunity to move the market under different scenarios. Outside of the anticipation of the US jobs data, emerging market currencies have experienced large moves, the commodities are having mixed results with technicals, and the options outside the data blast range are fewer and further apart. We discuss near-term volatility and broader trends in today's Trading Video.
