Forex Daily Outlook – December 4th 2009

Forex trading comes to a climax with American Non-Farm Payrolls, which are expected to fall once again. Also note Canadian employment data. Let’s see what’s awaiting us.

Swiss CPI is predicted to rise by 0.1% after a 0.6%. Swiss prices aren’t putting any pressure for a rate hike.

Canadian employment figures are expected to be OK: a positive 15.6 employment change number, that follows a big 43.6K drop, which in turn followed a good surprise.

The Canadian unemployment isn’t expected to move from 8.6%. Any surprise will shake USD/CAD, especially as these figures are published 90 minutes before the American NFP.

Later in Canada, Ivey PMI is predicted to drop from 61.2 to 60.6 points. For more on the loonie, read the Canadian dollar forecast.

Also in the US, Average Hourly Earnings are predicted to rise by 0.2% while Factory Order are expected to rise by 0.2%, after a 0.9% advance last month.
