Some market jitters ahead of NFP

What a difference a day makes! US stocks pulled back sharply on Thursday and this mood moderated enthusiasm for risk currencies like the Aussie and Kiwi. Recall I posted an article earlier this week about what to watch for with the weekly S&P500 so make sure you do your homework over coming weekends! Today brings NFP so watch to see if this news adds to the jitters at all. The US$ remains range-bound, as does Gold, but watch for any new momentum breakout moves. Recall also that Monday is a holiday in the US.

 

Data: watch today with US NFP.
