Week's main events (November 28– December 02)

The US Nonfarm Payrolls report will become the week's main event as it is the most important data for the Fed's monetary policy decision. Economists predict that non-sector employment will decline, making it more likely that the Fed should slow the rate hikes. Conversely, job growth indicates labor market strength, and the Fed could make another aggressive rate hike. The data on inflation in the Eurozone should also be on the trader's list since the ECB meeting is two weeks away. Also, investors should take advantage of the Manufacturing PMI data in various countries. There will also be many speeches this week by central bank officials that are worth watching closely.
