Due to the US shutdown, the US Bureau for Labour Statistics have not released the latest non-farm payroll figure (Bloomberg, 3rd Oct 2013). This figure is a key piece of data which can have a major impact on forex activity around the world.

Vantage FX’s Tim Plummer comments on what this means for forex traders:

“One of the most important and eagerly anticipated figures, the Non Farm Payrolls figure, has been cancelled due to the Government shut down in the US. This was confirmed by the US bureau of labor statistics. This has left traders infuriated as much of the trading week has been muted and subdued as traders wait for the figure. More importantly, going forward this has put the US in a very dark patch as traders have less information about the situation in the US. If traders were not confused before, they are now.”
