The data published by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics showed on Friday that Nonfarm Payrolls in the US rose by 390,000 in May, compared to the market expectation of 325,000. Unemployment was stable at 3.6%, where it has been for three months, 0.1% higher than at the start of the lockdowns and the lowest level since December 1969. The immediate market reaction has been for the US dollar to strengthen as a result of the stronger headline NFP number. The week ahead finds central bank meetings unfolding in the eurozone, Australia, India and Thailand while a series of inflation data will be in focus, particularly US CPI and consumer confidence figures. China will also release services PMI and inflation data alongside trade numbers for May, which will be closely scrutinised as the virus situation showed early signs of improvements.
