US jobless claims beat with 264K – more USD recovery?

0

More better than expected job new after yesterday’s good JOLTs but after the horrible NFP: jobless claims continue sliding and stand at 264K, slightly better than predicted. This is 4K lower than an upwards revised 268K last week. Continuing claims continue their drop towards the 2 million level with a beat at 2.095 million this time. The 4 week moving average slips back down under 270K.

Will the recovery of the US dollar continue? This recovery is still young and the dollar has been hit hard in the past week or so.

The weekly US jobless claims barometer was expected to stand at 270K after 267K last week (before revisions).

The US dollar was attempting a recovery as the yen continued surging higher. This session is a “risk off” one.

EUR/USD has failed to breach resistance at 1.1410 and fell back to support at 1.1335. The kiwi enjoyed early gains and the Canadian dollar backed off the highs after yesterday’s oil rally.

Another important publication awaits us tomorrow. See how to trade the US consumer sentiment with EUR/USD.
