NFP & ECB 3rd July + US Independence day 4th July

Trading hours for the upcoming 4th of July independence day can be found below as well as important information about this month’s NFP data release.

The NFP data release is usually held on the first Friday of the month. As the 4th of July independence day holiday is on this Friday the 4th, NFP has been moved forward a day to Thursday 3rd July. Normally this wouldn’t be big news, however, the monthly ECB press conference is also on this Thursday, at the same time..

We urge clients to use extreme caution in the latter half of this week. Thinner markets and high impact news can lead to erratic price action and exaggerated moves. Please manage your accounts accordingly.
