PaxForex start July with 395 pips


As every first Friday of the month we saw the non-farm payroll data orNFP out of the U.S. which on the headline came in better than expected and therefore plenty of currency charts have been temporarily disrupted which caused a spike in temporary floating losses in anti-USD crosses. Economists had forecasted that the U.S. economy added 165,000 jobs, but the report revealed total additions of 195,000 while theunemployment rate held steady at 7.6%.
Revisions to the prior two months showed an additional gain of 70,000 which further fueled hope at a recovery in the labor market. Those who decided to ignore the headline figure and dig a little bit deeper into the structure of the labor market were able to witness major problems. The number of discouraged workers or those who have part-time employment and seek a full time position surged to 14.3%. When you add this to the unemployment rate of 7.6% you arrive at a total figure of 21.9%.
Another sign of caution is the rise of part-time employments which rose to 28.1 Million. This eventually means that those positions will be eliminated and this will collapse the U.S. labor market which will send the unemployment rate back above double digits. Finally, over 50% of all created jobs are in the low income as well as low quality jobs which will not encourage greater economic activity. We expect the labor market to deteriorate over the course of the second-half of 2013.

This represents an increase of 1,109 pips or 12.31% which is also represents an all-time record. This was primarily due to the positive surprise in the NFP data which added to our losses as the USD surged against all major currencies. We expect this move to reverse over the summer.
