USD in Retreat Ahead of NFP
The USD continues to come under fire from slower growth concerns after a month of disappointing data. Even the last nonfarm payrolls (NFP) report that beat expectations did not help the dollar as the wage growth component showed a contraction of 1.7%.

Understanding the U.S. Nonfarm Payrolls Report
Published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the NFP report includes the total number of workers (excluding certain industries) that are added to the U.S. economy on a monthly basis. It is published the first Friday of every month at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. Of note, it affects all major currency pairs by ratcheting up FX market volatility.    >> Learn more about past NFP releases
