Daily Market Review – 31/08/2016
ADP Non-Farm Employment Change will be today’s main focus
The US currency is still trending upwards thanks in part to last week’s Jackson Hole Summit and a better than expected U.S. CB Consumer Confidence index.
Today at 12:15 GMT, ADP Non-Farm Employment Change data will be published. Additionally Canada’s Q2 GDP report is scheduled for 12:30 GMT.
But of course this week’s main event is NFP.
