WTI with November delivery is up a little more and is stood at around $47 per barrel. Growth in the quotes is being held back by negative oil reserve stats from the US.

Mixed Bag of Signals Coming From Down Under

On Thursday Australian labour market data was published. September unemployment in the county remained unchanged at 6.2%, thus meeting expectations. Employment creation in September was down 5,100 MoM, whilst it was expected to increase by 10,500. The employment situation in the country is still not quite fitting with the Australian economy’s poor economic outlook. Employment creation in Australia is up by 230,100 this year which is just below the highest it has been for the past four years.

Euro/Dollar: Left the Range on Weekly – New Target: 1.1620

On Wednesday the USD was down against the key pairs after weak retail sales data and manufacturing inflation figures for the US came out. The data was worse than expected. Previous retail sales figures were reassessed downwards. The key index for industrial prices fell to a minimum since January and the PPI was negative. The data has signalled a slowing of US economic growth and has lessened the likelihood of an interest rate hike in the near future.
