Market Movers Episode #19: State of the US job market,

6 years after the crisis broke out,  how far has the improvement in the US job market gone? We begin with this big picture overview and continue to a rundown of the FOMC minutes which triggered a huge market reaction. We then  discuss the forces bringing oil prices lower and conclude with a quick overview of the upcoming events in the week ahead.

The topics:

  1. State of the US labor market: How far has the recovery gone? And where are the weak spots? Not all numbers point in the same direction. We walk through the various data and also try to see what the Fed thinks about it.
  2. FOMC minutes rundown: What was actually in those  meeting minutes that triggered such a strong reaction? Or was it in the positioning and the  interpretation? We look back to this market moving event and forward to the next predicted moves?
  3. Falling oil prices:  The “black gold” is squeezed from both sides: supply and demand. We talk about  where  the pressures are coming from and what is next  for this critical commodity.
  4. Quick preview of the next events: we talk about the events of the week beginning on October 13th, and  point out key events.

Yohay Elam: Founder, Writer and Editor I have been into forex trading for over 5 years, and I share the experience that I have and the knowledge that I've accumulated. After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I've worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
