Building Confidence in Trading

The final piece of this week’s data puzzle is released tomorrow at 13:30 UK. The US Jobs Report (NFP) is a closely watched barometer of the labor market and tomorrow’s release will be in particular focus after the raft of weak jobs numbers already reported this week. Tuesday’s JOLTs numbers were particularly weak…


…Wednesday’s ADP report missed an already lowly target…


…while the latest weekly jobless claims rose.


The latest market forecast is for the payrolls report to show that 170k new jobs were created in August, down from the downwardly revised 187k seen in July.
