The Australian Dollar Is The Official Labour Market Data, Discussion Points:
- Australia, who lost 594,300 jobs in April
- It was even worse than expected
- The unemployment rate is the hero and which is better, but that’s all, but make sure to increase again
The Australian Dollar has been prepared for one of the lowest across the data sets on the record and has slipped only modestly, to the confirmation of this.
Thanks to Covid, the economy has lost 594,300 jobs in march, worse than the 575,000 expected. Full-time employment fell from 222,500 with a 373,800 part-time roles lost. The only glow in the unemployment rate. That was 6.2%, up 5.2% (or March), but below the 8.2% expected.
The labour-market collapse had been planned, since it was well known in the market, and that the previous month’s data had been flattered to a great extent by a comparison of a period which is prior to the various contagion-limiting production downtime.
The Reserve Bank of Australia said this month it is, he expects unemployment to peak of the order of 10% this year, growth is expected to fall by a similar amount. This suggests that a few more months, or a deeply unpleasant data are likely, which may explain the Aussie to sink lower after the data.
Australian interest rates are already at record levels and could still go lower. In any case, not height, and it is probable in the foreseeable future.
