Australia July employment +2.2K vs -46.2K expected

Australia July jobs data

Employment Change: K 
Unemployment Rate: 4.6%
Full-Time Employment Change: -4.2K 
Part-Time Employment Change: +2.0K 
Participation Rate: 66.0%

Underemployment %

That’s a big beat for Australia employment and the fall in unemployment to 4.6% is a huge surprise. There is a strong trend globally for countries shrugging off the effects of recent lockdowns but no one expected that to apply to a relatively-untouched place like Australia. Perhaps it has.

Initially, AUD/USD isn’t exactly cheering the report. The pair ticked slightly higher but is back to pre-release levels at 0.7226.
