We’re wrapping up a turbulent week in the foreign currency markets, where one might have expected more of a risk-on vibe following Friday’s positive U.S. unemployment figures. September saw an increase in 114,000 payrolls and a somewhat steep decline in the unemployment rate to 7.8%. Leading the initial charge higher in the currency markets was the Canadian dollar pushing to an intraday high of 1.0256 vs. the US dollar. The rally in the foreign currency trade was short lived; as we saw the likes of the Aussie, Canadian, and Euro currencies all pull back well off their intraday highs vs. the US dollar. The US dollar rose from oversold levels to finish the day right around unchanged. What kind of environment we will see heading into next week is anybody’s guess, but in my opinion we’ll see follow through action higher in the USD vs. the foreign currency trade early on.
