Arslan Butt • 1 min read
The AUD/USD currency pair hit the bearish track and dropped to 2-weeks lows and is fluctuating around the 0.6790 due to an increase in the jobless rate and focus on the fulltime employment change detail.
August’s labor market figures rose by 34.7k against the forecast of 10.0k whereas the jobless rate marked 5.3%, which was higher from 5.2% beforehand.
Moreover, the participation rate grew to 66.2% against 66.1% forecast and previous. Whereas, the full-time employment fell to -15.5K compared to 34.5K earlier.
The Australian dollar’s weakness deepened due to an increase in the jobless rate and drop in fulltime job rate as it could pressure the Reserve Bank of Australia to look for dovish monetary policies.
