Earlier in the Day:

It was a busier start to the day on the economic calendar this morning. The Aussie Dollar were in action this morning. Later this morning inflation figures from China are also due out.

For the Aussie Dollar

Employment fell by 138.0k in September, following a 146.3k slide in August. Economists had forecast a 137.5k decline.

According to the ABS,

  • Lockdowns in NSW, Victoria, and the Australian Capital Territory weighed on employment and hours worked.

  • The participation rate fell by 0.7 percentage points to 64.5%, while the unemployment increased from 4.5% to 4.6%.

The Aussie Dollar moved from $0.73879 to $0.73867 upon release of the figures. At the time of writing, the Aussie Dollar was up by 0.12% to $0.7388.

Elsewhere

At the time of writing, the Japanese Yen was down by 0.11% to ¥113.370 against the U.S Dollar. The Kiwi Dollar was up by 0.16% to $0.6975.

The Day Ahead

For the EUR

It’s a relatively quiet day ahead on the economic calendar. Finalized inflation figures from Spain are due out in the early part of the session.

Barring any marked revision to prelim figures, however, the numbers should have a muted impact on the EUR,

Central bank chatter will need monitoring, however, with the ECB’s Enria and Elderson scheduled to speak.

At the time of writing, the EUR was up by 0.03% to $1.1597.

For the Pound

It’s a quieter day ahead on the economic calendar, with no major stats due out of the UK to provide the Pound with direction.

While there are no stats, the BoE will be in focus. The BoE’s credit conditions survey is due out in the early part of the European session.

On the monetary policy front, MPC member Tenreyro is also scheduled to speak later in the day.

At the time of writing, the Pound was up by 0.07% to $1.3668.

Across the Pond

It’s a relatively busy day ahead. Wholesale inflation figures for September due out along with the weekly jobless claims. While wholesale inflation will influence, expect the jobless claims to be key.

On the monetary policy front, the FOMC member chatter will also need monitoring.

At the time of writing, the U.S Dollar Spot Index was down by 0.06% to 94.020.

For the Loonie

It’s a relatively quiet day ahead for the Loonie. Manufacturing sales figures for August are due out later in the day.

With little else for the markets to consider, we can expect some influence on the Loonie.

The IEA’s monthly report and crude oil inventories will also provide direction, however.

At the time of writing, the Loonie was up by 0.14% to C$1.2425 against the U.S Dollar.
