      Trading the News: UK Employment Change

      Updates to the UK Employment report may generate a short-term rebound in GBPUSD as the economy is expected to add 60K jobs in June.

      At the same time, the Average Weekly Earnings are anticipated to pick up during the same period, and signs of stronger job/wage growth may keep the Bank of England (BoE) on track to further normalize monetary policy as “the Committee judges that increases in interest rates, at a gradual pace and to a limited extent, would beappropriate to return inflation sustainably to the 2% target.”

      In turn, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) may stick to the same script at the next meeting on September 19, and Governor Mark Carney and Co. may continue to endorse a wait-and-see approach as the central bank insist that “the monetary policy response to Brexit, whatever form it takes, will not be automatic.”

      However, another batch of mixed data prints may spark a bearish reaction in the British Pound as it puts pressure on the BoE to alter the forward guidance for monetary policy.

      The UK Employment report showed the economy adding 28K jobs during the three months through May, while the jobless rate held steady at 3.8% for the third consecutive month.

      A deeper look at the report showed Average Weekly Earnings unexpectedly climbing to 3.4% from 3.2% in April, while Jobless Claims increased 38.0K in June after expanding a revised 24.5K the month prior.

      The mixed data prints triggered a limited reaction in the British Pound, with GBPUSD consolidating throughout the day to close at 1.2407. Learn more with the DailyFX Advanced Guide for Trading the News.

    •   Keep in mind, the broader outlook for GBPUSD is no longer constructive as the exchange rate snaps the upward trend from late last year after failing to close above the Fibonacci overlap around 1.3310 (100% expansion) to 1.3370 (78.6% expansion).

    •   More recently, GBPUSD has snapped the range-bound price action from earlier this month, with the break/close below the 1.2100 (61.8% expansion) handle opening up the Fibonacci overlap around 1.1890 (61.8% expansion) to 1.1950 (78.6% expansion).

    •   Will keep a close eye on the Relative Strength Index (RSI) as it holds in oversold territory, with the next area of interest coming in around 1.1680 (161.8% expansion) to 1.1730 (78.6% expansion).
