Summary of Economic Events & News of the Week!

Today, JustForex’s team of financial analysts has prepared a new review of events in the upcoming week. These events can significantly affect the Forex market. Choose and track the ones that are most important to you.

On Friday, September 01, the attention of the financial markets participants was focused on the report on the US labor market. In August, 156,000 jobs were created in the non-agricultural sector of the country, which is 13.3% less than the forecasted value of 180,000. The growth of the average hourly wage was 0.1%. Experts expected the figure at 0.2%. The unemployment rate increased from 4.3% to 4.4%. This statistic has reduced the financial markets participants’ expectations of another increase in the Fed’s interest rate this year. At the moment, the probability of tightening the monetary policy is 41.9%.
