One should not be fear of American payrolls results. The pay roll and dollar doesn't carry out the world economy. Every country has its currency and the same is dependent on its situations like climate , industrial , pandemic  ,unemployment ,agricultural growth etc. Then why the market depends on USA only.

because the whole world is based on dollar. And if america goes down then the inflation goes higher cause usa will turn on the money printing.

A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD. Higher USD usually means lower Gold price, and vice versa

Been waiting for this all week, Today we have 2 key economic releases Employment data for the USD & CAD. On Thursday I had told traders to watch the ADP no`s closely now here is my prediction for today. Buy CADXXX, SELL XXXCAD (cad employment) & SELL USDXXX, Buy XXXUSD. Don`t just enter Blindly watch the unemployment rates(%) if they are different from the unemployment change expect some whipsaws.
