The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Summary (JOLTS) numbers were released on Wednesday and the employment situation report is due on Friday. The impact of these reports on upcoming Federal Reserve guidance is something for traders to closely monitor as it carries implications for potential trading opportunities.
Jim Iuorio joined NinjaTrader’s Jim Cagnina on a recent episode of “See the Futures” to discuss how the labor market reports factor into Fed policy. They paid special attention to rate hiking, and how that relates to stock index, currency and interest rate futures.
