Upcoming Week's Major Market Movers
November 10, 2014 - 15:09
After reaching multi-year highs, the US Dollar Index (I.USDX) reversed its gains against most major currencies led by last week's US jobs data, which fell short of expectations. Friday's NFP data showed US economy adding 214,000 jobs in October as compared to the consensus estimates of 229,000 jobs. Although the NFP data fell short of expectations, the unemployment rate for October dropped further to 5.8%, and hence last week's slightly weaker US employment data doesn't seems to pose any serious risk for the ongoing strong...
