Trading Tip

Nonfarm Payroll Employment Change is the most exciting economic indicator in the world. The US economy is the largest in the world, and NFP reveals if more or less people found jobs in the past month.

As the USD is bound to be affected deeply, it carries the potential of moving all USD-related assets including:

  • Currency Pairs like EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/CAD.
  • Commodities like Gold, Silver and Platinum.
  • Indices like Dow Jones, S&P 500 and NASDAQ.
