Fundamental analysis for July 06, 2015

6 July, 2015

The market was relatively quiet at the end of last week - the major pairs were traded in narrow ranges, despite the US labor market publication which traditionally caused the volatility surge. The labor market report as a whole is positive - the unemployment rate fell to the level of 5.3%, the Non-Farm figure was 223 thousand. It is slightly worse than the median forecast, still the report is above 200 thousand. The average earnings index disappointed traders with the data worse than the consensus forecast, which will restrain the inflation growth.

Investors continue to monitor the situation with Greece. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras proposed a compromise to extent the financial assistance program. Meanwhile, Tsipras continued to call on the citizens to vote against the proposed measures by creditors.

The EUR/USD increased and the pair GBP/USD fell at the end of the week. The pair USD/JPY fell amid the risky assets demand.
