Current trend

Since today’s opening, the USD is falling.

Friday’s data on the Non-Farm Payrolls for September from the US came out a lot worse than expected (142 thousands new jobs against forecasted 203 thousand) and the US dollar significantly fell. Markets expectations of the interest rate increase at the next Fed meeting on 28 October, therefore, substantially decreased.

Today, attention needs to be paid to the US data on the Markit Services PMI and ISM Non-Manufacturing Production for September that could pressure the pair if come out better than forecasts.

After the fall in the USD, traders should be careful when making trading decisions.
