Tomorrow morning at 8:30 am Eastern Time, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) will be reporting the latest data for three major measures of US labor market activity. Average Hourly Earnings is forecast to increase by 0.3% month-over-month, Non-Farm Employment Change (NFP) is expected to see net 197,000 jobs added last month, and the new unemployment rate is anticipated to clock in at 3.6%, increasing by 0.1%. However, these market expectations are thrown into question by the Automatic Data Processing NFP estimates released yesterday: 178,000 jobs were forecast, whereas the final estimation was a whopping 239,000 Non-Farm Payrolls added last month. If this same hot labor upset plays out in the BLS’ data on NFP and more tomorrow, we could experience yet another bullish fundamental catalyst for USD, lending even more credibility to the Fed’s concerns that high inflation is far from dealt with.
