    • "Even if Friday’s US NFP report comes near our below consensus 165k forecast, we see the USD remaining bid. The Fed’s rhetoric suggests they want to get their first hike out of the way."
    • "Hence, we may have to see significant data weakness or global markets experiencing another volatility spike to put the Fed off its plans to hike."
    • "Should the labour market show surprising strength and this strength include strong wages, then investors will have to assume the Fed will drop its ‘lazy rate hike’ strategy (hiking, but downplaying the significance of the rate hike cycle) as it sees markets pricing in a more aggressive stance."
