We have received the latest North American employment figures, so let’s see where the 8 major currencies stand at 3 PM GMT.
Sterling/New Zealand is the mover of the day with an increase of point 66%. The pair was flat for hours after the early rise and it surged once again after 9 o’clock in the morning.
UK Sterling leads the advancers and decliners table and it’s just slightly up from the Swiss Franc, which rises as uncertainty looms ahead of the US elections.
Final Euro Zone Services PMI was revised lower, but Single currency is mostly higher and point 13% up from the Buck. US Non-Farm employment change disappointed slightly, but unemployment rate ticked lower, as expected.
Japanese Yen is up only from the commodity currency trio, which is under pressure.
Canadian employment change and Ivey PMI releases both were positive and Loonie Dollar is the most bullish of the three commodity currencies, but only by a fraction.
Australian Dollar is close to level with the neighboring New Zealand Dollar, which is the most bearish of the 8 majors.
Weekly bulls chart is led by Sterling/Canada and it’s the only pair that has gained more than 3%. Canada/Yen tops the bearish section and Canada/Swissie shows a similar slide.
New Zealand/Canada has had a bullish month and the pair is up by more than 4%. Sterling/New Zealand shows a similar slide and it’s the most bearish pair.
