Gold is falling after strong US data

The Asian trading session was kind of boring, with forex participants only having to deal with lower-tiered data from Australia and China.

The service PMI from Australia has shown some improvement for the month of January, with the employment component revealed extraordinary results, In the meantime, the inflation gauge, as well as the job ads, report soared higher for the month.

Moreover, the real limelight for the session was China’s Caixin services PMI, which was released at 54.6 compared to the analysts’ 53.6 reading for January.

BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda in his scheduled speech in Parliament emphasized that he and his company are being patient. He is still focused on achieving the extremely important 2% inflation target and the country remains far from the current target, so currently monetary easing should continue. His remarks put a dent in the Yen’s gains, which gained traction due to the overall risk aversion sentiment.

Asian equities follow their US counterparts, which interpreted that a strong NFP report, could mean higher bond yields and a stronger inflation in the short term.Nikkei 225 close lower by 2.55% at 22,682.08

As for commodities, U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude declined 58 cents to $64.91 a barrel. Brent was down 61 cents, or 0.89% percent, at $67.97 a barrel.

Outlook:

The trading trend in the Pound today is expected to be determined by the release of UK’s Markit services PMI for January, set to release next hour.
