Initial Jobless Claims measures the number of individuals who filed for unemployment insurance for the first time during the past week. This is the earliest U.S. economic data, but the market impact varies from week to week.

A higher than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD.

Bounces of EUR/USD will happen. The trend is down and will remain down as the fundamentals have not changed. The Euro has tremendous downward pressure, and the ECB wants the Euro down- the policy is they are just going to QE, and WANT it down...its going down by end of year 1.09 or even less. Worry in USA perhaps about 2 strong dollar will cause bounces - thats it.

hi Latha, i think that you should look for selling opp on EURUSD; US economy is improving, data has been good, euro zone has cut interest rates, so as an investor you should look to sell this pair i still think that till the end of the year we could see EURUSD hitting 1.2000 - 1.22000. but this is just my opinion.
