Australia’s unemployment rate rose unexpectedly in January, and the Australian dollar dropped sharply. FX168 news Thursday (February 18th), the early morning of the Asian dollar, the Australian dollar hovered around 0.7165. The initial exchange rate began to decline, then declined sharply to 0.7134, but now rebounded slightly from the low level. Australia’s employment report released in the day disappointed the market. Australia’s employment population fell for second consecutive months in January, and unemployment rose to a 4 month high. This disappointing report weighed on the Australian dollar, and slightly increased the risk of further interest rate cuts by the RBA. Data show that Australia’s January employment declined 7 thousand and 900, while market forecast to increase 13 thousand; full-time employment fell 40 thousand and 600, part-time employment population increased by 32 thousand and 700; the unemployment rate rose to 6% from 5.8%, economists forecast to 5.8%; the labor force participation rate unchanged at 65.2%, in line with economists estimated level. Affected by the data, the Australian dollar rose sharply to the lows of around 0.7135. Inter bank interest rate futures cut slightly earlier, due to a slight increase in the probability of market interest rate cuts. The current interest rate futures suggest that the rate of 2% overnight interest rate cuts is about 50% before May. The Australian Federal Reserve (RBA) has said that despite the slowdown in China’s economic growth and financial market turmoil make the global economic outlook for Mengyin, but the employment of the past is strongly decided not to cut interest rates an important reason. Indeed, even as the employment population declined in January, Australia added 298 thousand new jobs in the year to January. Employment grew at an annual rate of 2.6%, even more than that of the United states. Australian monetary policy makers admit that they are surprised by the strong employment situation, because Australia’s economic growth rate is close to 2.5% low level. Many people believe that the reason for the strong employment is the rapid growth of services; compared with the mining and manufacturing industries, the Australian service industry is more labor-intensive. The number of employees in the service sector grew by more than 350 thousand in the year to November, and health care increased by 151 thousand in one area. ANZ Bank (ANZ) senior analyst Justin Fabo said, "since the financial crisis, nearly 1/3 of the health care industry accounted for Australia new jobs, accounting for approximately 40% of the total working hours increased," the RBA has said it will pay close attention to whether employment to maintain good performance, analysts speculate if the employment situation may be weakened significantly increased the probability of further rate cuts.

澳洲1月失业率意外攀升 澳元一度加剧下跌   FX168讯 周四(2月18日)亚市早盘,澳元 美元位于0.7165附近水平徘徊。盘初汇价展开跌势,之后加剧下滑至0.7134,但目前自低位略微反弹。   日内公布的澳洲就业报告令市场大失所望。澳洲1月就业人口连续第2个月下滑,失业率升至4个月高点,这份令人失望的报告打压澳元汇率,并略微提高了澳洲联储(RBA)进一步降息的几率。   数据显示,澳大利亚1月份就业人口环比减少0.79万人,而市场预估为增加1.3万人;全职就业人口减少4.06万人,兼职就业人口增加3.27万人;失业率自5.8%上升至6%,经济学家预估为5.8%;劳动参与率持平于65.2%,符合经济学家预估水平。   受数据影响,澳元 美元应声加剧盘初跌势至0.7135附近低位。银行间利率期货缩减稍早时跌幅,因市场预期降息几率稍微增加。   当前目前利率期货暗示,现为2.00%的隔夜拆款利率在5月前下调的几率约为50%。   澳洲联储(RBA)曾表示,尽管中国经济增长降速以及金融市场动荡令全球经济前景蒙阴,但以往的就业强劲是决定不降息的重要原因。   的确,即便是1月就业人口减少,澳洲在截至1月的一年内仍净增29.8万个新工作岗位。就业增长年率高达2.6%,甚至超过美国。   澳洲货币政策制定者坦承对强劲的就业情况感到意外,因澳洲经济增长率处于2.5%的低水平附近。许多人士认为就业强劲的原因在于服务业快速增长;相比矿业和制造业,澳洲服务业的劳动密集程度更高。服务业雇聘人数在截至11月的一年内增长超过35万人,医疗保健一个领域就增长15.1万。   澳新银行(ANZ)资深分析师Justin Fabo称,“自金融危机以来,医疗保健行业占到澳洲新增就业的近三分之一,在增加的总工时中占到约40%,”   澳洲联储已经表示将密切关注就业是否维持较好表现,分析师猜测若就业情况转弱,可能明显加大进一步降息的几率。   (澳元 美元60分钟图 来源:FX168财经网)   北京时间10:10,澳元 美元报0.7161 64。 进入【新浪财经股吧】讨论相关的主题文章:
