US DOLLAR, GOLD PRICE, S&P 500 – MARKET REACTIONS TO JUNE 2020 NFP REPORT, WEEKLY JOBLESS CLAIMS DATA

  • US Dollar remains under pressure with the DXY Index trading about 0.25% lower immediately after the latest monthly nonfarm payrolls report and weekly jobless claims data release
  • Gold price action tumbled by about 0.5% in the run-up to the employment figures and is currently trading near session lows
  • S&P 500 Index futures give back some gains but Wall Street still looks set to open higher despite the mixed labor market figures and rising coronavirus second wave risk

Monthly nonfarm payrolls for June and weekly jobless claims for the week ended 27-June just crossed the wires and look to dominate market headlines for Thursday’s trading session. According to the DailyFX Economic Calendar, the headline net change in NFPs was reported at 4.8-million jobs added, which topped the median economist estimate looking for 3.0-million and compares to the prior reading of 2.5-million.
