What’s up, traders?
The U.S. dollar is expected to continue on its’ price in the U.S. labor market figures. Today, Monday, the greenback stayed near its 2018 high after U.S. jobs and wages data remain mixed.
The U.S. economy added fewer jobs than expected. The average hourly earning also disappoints as they rose less-than-expected 0.1% in April, leaving the annual increase at 2.6%.
The unemployment rate sank to 3.9%. Although it’s an incredible improvement, the worse than expected nonfarm payroll and pricing of the market kept the dollar in check.
This week, we don’t have much from the United States, but the BOE and RBNZ will remain in our highlights. In fact, you should check FX Leaders weekly economic outlook for handy information. Let’s take a look at the new trading levels for gold and crude oil.
