Gold Moves in Rigid Boundaries Ahead of U.S. ADP Non Farm Employment Change, Trade Balance Data, Further High Volatility Likely in Gold; July 07, 2022

U.S. ADP Non Farm Employment Change Results

Today’s U.S. Calendar will be interesting one as U.S. will release ADP job data at 1215 GMT/1745 IST and Trade balance data at 1230 GMT/1800 IST.

The ADP National Employment Report is a measure of the monthly change in non-farm, private employment, based on the payroll data of approximately 400,000 U.S. business clients. The release, two days ahead of government data, is a good predictor of the government’s non-farm payroll report. A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative for the USD.

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