Trading Nadex into the News: AUD Employment Change And Unemployment Rate
Employment is the number of people that have jobs; the number of people employed. That is important to you whether you have a job or not. It is also an important indicator of consumer spending because if the number of people without jobs goes up, the amount of spending will likely go down.
Each country releases their own reports of Employment Change and Unemployment Rates. Australia will release their report on Wednesday, October 8 at 8:30 PM. The forecast is for a drop of 30.0 K. The previous amount was 121.0 K. If the report comes out with a higher than expected reading, that should be taken as positive or bullish for the AUD, whereas a lower than expected reading would be regarded as negative or bearish for the AUD.
The Unemployment Rate report is also released at the same time. This report measures the percentage of the total workforce that is unemployed and actively looking for work during the previous month. The forecast for this report is 6.2%. If this report comes out higher than expected, it is negative or bearish for the AUD. If it is lower, then it will be positive or bullish for the AUD.
