With volatility climbing in the FX markets, attention turns to the next high-profile catalyst: August US NFPs. The employment data has a reputation for generating volatility for the dollar and broader capital markets. However, that impact needs to be taken in context. The first consideration is how much market response the report can reasonably muster. The FX and capital markets are growing more active generally.

Next, is weighing the influence a 'bullish' or 'bearish' outcome could have given the strong performance of the greenback as of late. We look over the scenarios for this jobs report and its dollar influence in today's Strategy Video.
