Forex news for Asia trading Thursday 14 May 2020

The early move was a lower USD/JPY, dropping under 107 as the Asia
morning became a little more active. More substantial currency moves
followed the release of the Australian jobs marekt report for April,
where a large number of job losses was the expected, and in the
event, was the result. Employment dropped in the month by a record
594,300. The details of the report showed a big drop in hours worked
million people either lost their jobs or had their hours reduced 
and rising underemployment. Labour market participation slumped with
nearly half a million withdrawals from the labour force. The
Australian Bureau of Statistics said that without this the
unemployment rate would have skyrocketed to around 9.6%.

fell to a fresh session, with the NZD along for the ride lower. But
the impact was wider with falls for GBP and EUR alongside. The dire
employment outcome is going to be duplicated in other countries in
the days, weeks and months ahead.
