US dollar gains vs euro, yen on mediocre jobs report

  • The US dollar gained on the euro and yen on Friday after a lackluster US jobs report that supported a Federal Reserve rate rise later this year but not necessarily this month.
  • The US economy pumped out 151,000 net new jobs in August, below the 180,000 expected.
  • It was a solid number, and analysts split on whether it was enough for the Fed to act at its meeting later this month.
  • Although the data wasn’t as strong as the market had expected, it was pretty much good enough that there is a possibility of a Fed hike in September,” said Boris Schlossberg of BK Asset management.
