Fundamental analysis for February 09, 2016

February 9, 2016

All traders' attention was directed to the USA labor market statistics. Despite the fact that the NFP has not reached even to a modest forecast (it showed 151 000 versus the forecast of 190 000), and the previous value was revised downward, the dollar was able to consolidate its positions. However on Monday the trades were differentdirected.

The US Average Hourly Earnings showed a strong jump of 0.5% from the previous 0.0%. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate reached a cyclical low level of 4.9%, having fallen unexpectedly by 5.0%. The wages growth rate is crucial for the Fed, pointing to the inflation acceleration prospects that is why the dollar ignored the weak NFP and focused on the Hourly Earnings results. The EU did not present any significant data. By the end of the trades the pair euro/dollar slightly increased.

The Friday's labor market release contributed to the US and UK government bond yield spreads expansion which is traditionally a bearish factor for the British currency. On the other hand, the oil market bulls prefer to long which in its turn positively affects the pound value. However the pair point/dollar rebounded upwards after a decrease.

The Monetary Policy Meeting minutes will be published on February 18th. Meanwhile according to the Bank of Japan chairman the volatility in the world markets have a negative impact on business sentiment. The pair dollar/yen sharply fell.
