Australia ANZ Job Ads Growth Eases Sharply In August

Australia's job advertisement grew at a much slower pace in August, data from ANZ showed on Monday.

Job ads increased 1.6 percent month-on-month in August, after a 19.1 percent rise in July.

At the same time, job advertisements decreased by 27.0 percent since February and declined 30 percent on a yearly basis in August.

"With Victoria accounting for more than 26% of the nation's pre-pandemic employment, the Stage 4 restrictions in Melbourne and Stage 3 in regional Victoria have undoubtedly put the brakes on," ANZ Senior Economist Catherine Birch said.

"This is consistent with weekly payroll data, which show Victorian jobs falling and New South Wales jobs coming to a standstill," Birch said.

"Q4 is also looking worrying, given the amount of fiscal support to workers, businesses and households scheduled to be withdrawn, particularly with Victoria only gradually emerging from lockdowns," Birch said.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
