Gold Stabilizes Below $1,840 mark ahead of U.S. ADP Employment Change Data, $15+ Volatility Likely in Gold; Feb 03, 2021

U.S. ADP Non – Farm Employment Change

Today’s U.S. session will be important as U.S. will publish ADP job data (1315 GMT/1845 IST) followed by U.S. ISM Services PMI data (1500 GMT/2030 IST). In addition, OPEC – JMMC meeting is also scheduled. OPEC-JMMC meetings are attended by representatives from the 13 OPEC members and 11 other oil-rich nations. They discuss a range of issues regarding energy markets and, most importantly, agree on how much oil they will produce. Any further changes regarding oil production and supply may bring volatility in the FX markets.

Here I am briefing you out about the U.S. ADP Employment Change data. Job creation is an important leading indicator of consumer spending, which accounts for a majority of overall economic activity. ADP (Automatic Data Processing) analyzes payroll data from more than 23 million workers to derive employment growth estimations.

Let’s see how Gold has reacted during the previous data release.
