Nonfarm Payroll Employment is a compiled name for goods, construction and manufacturing companies in the United States. It does not include farm workers, private household employees, or non-profit organization employees. It is an influential statistic and economic indicator released monthly by the United States Department of Labor as part of a comprehensive report on the state of the labor market. The financial assets most affected by the nonfarm payroll (NFP) data include the United States dollar, equities and gold. The markets react very quickly and most of the time in a very volatile fashion around the time the NFP data is released.
The short-term market moves indicate that there is a very strong correlation between the NFP data and the strength of the US dollar. Historical price movement data shows a small negative correlation between the NFP data and the United States dollar Index. The Bureau of Labor Statistics releases preliminary data on the third Friday after the conclusion of the reference week, i.e., the week which includes the 12th of the month, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time; typically this date occurs on the first and last Friday of the month. Nonfarm payroll is included in the monthly Employment Situation or informally the jobs report and affects the United States dollar, the Foreign exchange market, the bond market, and the stock market. The figure released is the change in nonfarm payrolls (NFP), compared to the previous month, and is usually between +10,000 and +250,000 during non-recessional times. The NFP number is meant to represent the number of jobs added or lost in the economy over the last month, not including jobs relating to the farming industry. PLEASE NOTE: NFP withdrawal is every first and last Friday of each month and you can earn between 40% to 100% of your investment
