Be Cautious Ahead of Australia’s Job Data; 25+ PIP Movement Expected in AUD Counterparts

Australia Employment Change & Unemployment Rate

Australia will release Job data due tomorrow at 0030 GMT/0600 IST. Job creation is an important leading indicator of consumer spending, which accounts for a majority of overall economic activity. In addition, unemployment rate is also viewed as a lagging indicator. The number of unemployed people is an important signal of overall economic health because consumer spending is highly correlated with labor-market conditions. Here, employment change must be higher than expected one and unemployment rate must be lower than expected one.

Let’s see how AUD has reacted during the previous data release:
