The nonfarm payrolls published by the US Department of Labor measures changes in the number of employed during the last month in the non-agricultural sector. Monthly changes and adjustments to the data can be very volatile as they are correlated to the central bank“s monetary policy. This is the most important part of the data contained in the employment report, which offers a better overview of the economy. Monthly reviews of these data can cause huge volatility in the forex market. Indicators higher than expected, are considered as positive/bullish for the USD, and a reading below expectations indicate a negative/bear market for the currency. But it is worth noticing, that not only the headline number but monthly reviews and unemployment rate are very important as well, so the reaction of market participants depend on all those indicators.
