Forex Strategy Video: AUDUSD, AUDJPY Top Trade Options for NFPs

Forex Strategy Video: AUDUSD, AUDJPY Top Trade Options for NFPs

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The August NFP release can generate significant volatility as the market weighs Taper fallout

• 'Surprises' in the payrolls figures have ranged between extremes of 50,000 and 180,000 jobs

• The greatest market impact would be derived from jobs data tapping into Taper fears and risk trends

In the past months, we have seen Treasury yields soar and carry trade collapse in response to the timetable for the Fed's Taper, but the S&P 500 weathered the storm. That may change with the upcoming NFPs release. The market seems virtually certain of a September reduction in QE3 purchases that would in turn change the dynamic of external support for the capital markets. The implications are clear for a market that has been built on borrowed money, yet investors are still trying to draw as much return as possible - flouting the risk. Yet, the deleveraging threat is very real. In today's Forex Strategy Video, we discuss the FX trades that are positioned to take advantage of a heavy reaction to the employment data.
