Yesterday we saw Dollar strength after better than expected manufacturing data on Monday increased the chance of a December rate hike to 59% according to the Fed watch tool. It looks like markets have already started pricing in a hike though we know a rate hike in December is data dependent and that there are still a few very important releases due out of America this week before NFP. We also have a few FOMC members speaking between now and Friday. Should lackluster data be seen out of America over the coming days, we could see some profit taking on the current moves. If data is positive then the trend should continue – strong Dollar, weak Yen.

Upcoming US Data Releases
1. ADP Non-Farm Employment change
2. ISM Non-Manufacturing Employment
3. ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI
