AUDUSD gains bolstered by USD softness

The AUD/USD is trading sideways, around 0.7550 at the time of writing, after the pair managed to find support at the 0.75 handle.

Looking ahead, Fed rate hike expectations are at center stage as we approach the August NFPs, with theAussie looking vulnerable if the report pulls forward rate hike bets.

August US Non-farm Payrolls hits the wires 12:30 GMT. Expectations are for a 180K jobs increase, down from the 255K prior number.

The NFP report is always in focus, and today’s numbers are no different as Yellen said last week that “the case for an increase in the federal funds rate has strengthened”, which pulled forward Fed rate hike bets and gave the US Dollar a boost.

This makes for a potentially huge event today, with the market looking to confirm or contradict the shift in the projected rates timeline, potentially implying a binary response on a big beat or miss to expectations in the headline figure.

With that said, opportunity might lie in the nuances.

A slight miss to the headline figure, that neither confirms nor contradicts the build-up in Fed bets, might see a knee-jerk US Dollar sell reaction.

This brief term sideways congestion places the point of interest firmly on america NPFs later these days for a probable range destroy catalyst
america Non-farm Payrolls take middle stage today. The headline parent is anticipated to reveal 180k growth in payrolls versus the previous big 287k print, and the unemployment determine is predicted to tick down to 4.eight% from the prior four.nine% determine.

The may and June figures noticed a large pass over and beat to expectations respectively. This makes these days’s numbers seem even extra of an unknown. The context, because it pertains to the united states dollar, is probably what the figures may want to imply at the backdrop of Friday’s massive 2Q US GDP sadness.

A large beat to expectancies (preferably with a beat in salary increase as well) would possibly shift sentiment to a more upbeat tone on the usa economy, and seems possibly to send america dollar better.

the opposite seems likely to color a gloomy photograph after Friday’s GDP figures and could potentially ship the us dollar tumbling.

A shift in underlying trends for the Dollar and ‘risk’ (equities, emerging market assets, etc) has begun but momentum will require a much stronger push. Financial system quiet is facing more immediate disruption though in impending event risk- most prominently today’s BoE rate decision and Friday’s NFPs. Despite the recent hiccup in activity across the financial system, activity levels are still extraordinarily low. A comprehensive and capable catalyst is needed – whether to forge sentiment (whether optimism or pessimism) or motivate trend for a specific area of the market.




The Sterling is facing critical event risk in the form of the Bank of England (BoE) rate decision and its accompanying Quarterly Inflation report. Already an important event in itself, the policy meeting’s amplitude is bolstered by its Brexit implications. GBP/USD and the Pound plunged in the wake of the vote by the UK to break from the European Union in large part due to the fear of economic fallout and financial trouble resulting from the outcome. The central bank itself contributed to that gloomy outlook before the Brexit. After holding steady in July, expectations for preemptive action to avert economic or financial trouble were diluted. Furthermore, implied volatility around the event grew distorted – overnight projections are very high but a one-week outlook is remarkably quiet. With pain already significantly discounted, the heaviest impact for the Pound would follow promotion of stability in the UK markets…but that can be difficult to achieve for the BoE.

Given the global spillover from the US and Japanese monetary policy changes over the past week, we should monitor the impact that this even has on favored risk benchmarks (mine include S&P 500 and USD/JPY).
