EUR/USD on Non-Farm Payrolls

Date April 3, 2009

In my non-farm payrolls preview yesterday, I talked about how the initial reaction in the EUR/USD post payrolls is fade-able. In each of the last 3 times that payrolls was released, the EUR/USD’s knee jerk reaction was quickly erased as a new trend emerged for the trading day. This is the chart that I showed on how the EUR/USD traded after the non-farm payrolls release on January, February and March.

This is how the EUR/USD has traded so far since the non-farm payrolls release – see the resemblance?

    Instead of EUR USD, I love to see the knee jerk reaction on GBP JPY during NFP released. I have no strategy to use to open trade during NFP released. I will ensure all positions would be closed before the NFP released and start to rest until the next Monday. Thanks for sharing this good info!

    NFP is still non tradable news.. too much unpredictable data… (incl. revision data)

    choppy? I would say it was a train wreck. The Euro was killing the dollar, then reversed, and on and on with unpredictable action. Hard to make a buck these days!
