The US dollar is trading near seven week highs as economic data has been solid, the central bank is still pushing for a third rate hike and the tax reform proposal is moving forward. Leading manufacturing and non manufacturing indicators have improved and rising exports have shrunk the trade deficit to a yearly low but questions remain on the effect the tropical storms will have on the biggest economic indicator in the market. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics will release the non farm payrolls (NFP) report on Friday, October 6 at 8:30 am EDT. The economy is forecasted to have added 82,000 positions in September. The impact of hurricanes Harvey and Irma is to blame for the under performance but given the resilience of the economy the possibility of the final figure beating expectations is not far fetched.
