The American Currency Is Consolidating. We Are Expecting a Report on the US Labor Market

The US dollar has not changed much against a basket of major currencies. The dollar index (#DX) closed with a slight decrease (-0.01%). Support for the US currency had optimistic economic data. Thus, the number of employees in the non-farm sector from ADP increased in August by 195K, while experts expected 148K. The ISM non-manufacturing PMI in the US rose in August to 56.4 instead of the expected value of 54.0. We are expecting labor statistics from the USA and Canada.

The British pound is still growing. The sentiment of financial market participants improved due to a possible delay in the "hard" Brexit. Also, investors continue to monitor the situation around the trade dispute between Washington and Beijing. US and China plan to resume trade negotiations in October.

The black gold prices continue to consolidate. Currently, the WTI crude oil futures are testing the $56.25 per barrel mark.
