It showed that private businesses hired 183 thousand workers in February, fewer than an upwardly-revised 300 thousand in January, but only slightly below market expectations (189k). </p><p>With that in mind, chances seem good that today’s NFPs will come in solid. At first glance, it could potentially result in an upwards push in US yields, and push back above 112.00 in USD/JPY. </p><p>But after the comments from Fed of New York President John Williams, delivered during a speech at the Economic Club of New York, where he said that the Fed may consider negative rates and quantitative easing in case of an economic downturn – any positive effect of a solid employment reading may be short-lived, if we get to see one at all. </p><p>In fact, if the NFPs disappoint, a weak weekly close for the USD could result, with USD/JPY going for a test of the region around 111.00. A push below that point would level the path for further losses in the upcoming week, with an initial target around 110.40.</p><p><a href=””><img style=”width:auto;” class=”img-responsive” src=”” style=”” rel=”” alt=”USD/JPY daily chart”></a></p><p><em>Source: Admiral Markets </em><a href=”″><em>MT5</em></a><em> with </em><a href=””><em>MT5-SE Add-on</em></a><em> USD/JPY Daily chart (between December 12, 2018, to March 7, 2019).
