The U.S. nonfarm payrolls report, which beat expectations by a wide margin, showed that labor market demand has firmed, which not only eased recent recession fears to a certain extent, but also suggested that the Federal Reserve will continue to raise interest rates sharply to curb high inflation. This coincides with the recent Federal Reserve officials’ frequent statement to convey a firm attitude to control inflation. At the same time, the Fed’s firm attitude towards the interest rate hike cycle is also one of the main factors supporting the sharp rebound of the US dollar index from the recent lows. Of course, the Fed’s determination to raise interest rates by 75 basis points again in September may have to wait for the assistance of the latest CPI (consumer price index) data released next week.
