MARKET DEVELOPMENT – USD Whipsaws on Mixed NFP, FX Volatility Subdued

USD: While today’s NFP report saw the headline figure beat analyst estimates, the main takeaway is the drop-in wage growth with both the monthly and annual numbers missed forecasts.

CAD: After two months of strong gains in jobs created for Canada, this month saw jobs lost (-7.2k), which stemmed predominantly from full time workers (-6.4k).
