US dollar droops, jeopardized by its own data.
“The data suggests slower labour growth in months to come as financial condition tightens.”
Greenback erased its previous gains as recent economic data reinforced risk seeking sentiment among market participants. According to ADP, US Nonfarm Employment Change came in at 128,000, significantly lower when compared to consensus of 300,000. The data has jeopardized bullish speculation among traders for a positive tilted Nonfarm Payrolls report that could cement the need for further tightening from Federal Reserve. Likewise, recent reopening of economic activity after two-months lockdown in Shanghai has also increased the demand for Antipodeans such as Australian and New Zealand dollar.

Overall, the pair has an adequate range to further extend its upside bias in the mid-term. However, it is worth noting that 200-MA line in daily perspective could remain as a setback if bulls failed to takeover the hurdle for the time being.
