American ADP Non-Farm Payrolls, Canada’s GDP, British Final GDP, Swiss KOF Economic Barometer and Japan’s Tankan Manufacturing Index make the current headlines. Let’s review today’s activities. In the US, American ADP Non-Farm Payrolls: The report for the private sector is sometimes called the “mini Non-Farm Payrolls”. In many months, it didn’t predict the direction of the NFP, but this changed last month, as the weak growth in the private sector was reflected in the NFP 2 days later. Three months of job gains will probably be followed by a fourth one. Expectations stand on a gain of 58K jobs.

Finally in the US, Crude Oil Inventories expected to add to the surplus inventories following last week’s surge of 2.0 M. In Canada, Canadian GDP for the month of March, that finished Q1, was excellent – 0.6%. This exceeded expectations and completed an annual growth rate of 6.1% in Q1.

Last month saw a significant rise from 2.05 to 2.16 – a score which was better than expected. The Swiss economy is doing well, and so is their currency, especially against the Euro. A small rise to 2.17 is expected now.
