The nonfarm payroll (NFP) report term used in the U.S. to refer to the number of new jobs added from the previous month.
The NFP data contains many valuable insights that have a direct impact on the stock market, the value of the U.S. dollar and the price of gold. The markets react very quickly and most of the time in a very volatile fashion around the time the NFP data is released.
A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD.
Nonfarm payrolls are reported on the first Friday of the following month, at 8:30 a.m EST.
