NAFTA is Tentatively Done

Forex Signals Brief for Oct 1: Jobs and Trade in Focus

Posted Monday, October 1, 2018 by

Markets have had a busy start to the trading week thanks to news headlines coming out suggesting that the NAFTA deal is done. That’s seen the USD/CAD fall away sharply and we need to watch this space as the US traders come online for the week.

Trade fears have been keeping a bit of a lid on things and today’s developments might give equity markets a spark. US futures have been strong in Asian trade so far, so we might get a strong lead at the very least.

There looks to be a fair bit of economic data coming out this week, which will be highlighted by the US employment data which will be released on Friday.

The USD has started to rev its engines once again and is slowly but surely pushing back up towards the highs. A strong employment report will keep the majors under pressure and all but lock in a further December rate hike. If it is not already all but guaranteed.

On Monday, we have manufacturing data from Germany and the UK which will be market moving, while the US has some of its own with ISM Manufacturing PMI.
