NFP – Non Farm Payrolls report is due tomorrow at 8:30 Am EST. This is  market moving report. I personally like to look for breakouts, retracements and then a signal that the first brekaout was valid and go with that direction but obviously this is just a general frame and the actual trading is much riskier / complicated than that.
What is NFP? Non-Farm Payrolls ( credit: )
The US economic calendar is stacked with many events throughout the month but none is more anticipated that the release of Non-Farm Payroll figures. Non-Farm Payrolls also known as NFP, is reported monthly by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics to give a timely glimpse into employment changes inside of the United States. Ultimately this report can give traders insight into whether the US economy is expanding or contracting while directly influences the decisions of policy makers such as the US Federal Reserve. With this in mind let’s take a closer at this news event, so we can better understand NFP and its potential impact on marks.
First, NFP looks specifically at net changes in employment as jobs are created or subtracted in an economy in any given month. The term Non-Farm is used since farm / agricultural workers are not included in the employment count. The decision to not include agricultural jobs lies in these jobs being largely seasonal that could possibly produce small temporary shifts in labor reporting. For this reason certain government employees, private household employees and nonprofit organization are also not included in the count.
NFP reports affect interest rate futures, forex futures, indices, metals and even the energy sector to name some of the markets moved by this report.
