Market Update – 7th July 2017 – Equities & The Aussie Dollar Decline, Commodities Make Gains

Equities and the Aussie dollar fell overnight however commodities performed quite well managing to make modest gains across the board. U.S equities were dragged down by poorer than anticipated preliminary ADP jobs numbers which failed to meet estimates and more than likely point to the fact that the official U.S Non-Farm payrolls figure tonight could also be weak.

Ahead this evening is UK manufacturing production figures at 6.30pm followed by U.S non-farm payrolls and the accompanying data around 10.30pm this evening. Estimates suggest we’ll see around 175K new jobs created and very modest increase in earnings for the average U.S worker. The U.S unemployment rate is not expected to budge from 4.3%. Have a fantastic weekend and should you wish to take advantage of volatility tonight – then a Market Order would be the best course of action.
