Thursday’s Factors and Events

Canadian Core Inflation printed at a respectable 1.80% overnight and even Australia had some good news, adding 13,500 jobs in January. More pleasingly, although part-time employment fell by 32,700, full-time jobs rose by 46,200, showing no sign of a China virus slowdown. It is somewhat of a surprise than that the Australian dollar has fallen this morning even as equities jumped to a record high. It is perhaps because of a sense of disbelief from the men down under, with the Employment data notoriously fickle and the Australian Bureau of Statistics often the butt of cost-cutting jokes.
