Forex Fundamental Analysis – U.S. worker productivity fell at its steepest pace


USDJPY trading plan:

U.S. worker productivity in the second quarter fell at its steepest pace on an annual basis since 1948 when the Labor Department began tracking it, while growth in unit labor costs accelerated, suggesting strong wage pressures will continue to help keep inflation elevated. Nonfarm productivity, which measures hourly output per worker, fell at a 2.5% pace from a year ago, the department said. It also declined sharply in the second quarter at a 4.6% annualized rate, after having declined by an upwardly revised 7.4% in the first three months of the year. This is a negative signal for the U.S. economy.

Investment idea: sell 135.66 and take profit 135.00.
