Initial jobless claims have been consistently below the forecast for quite some time. Likewise, I can't see PPI / CPI going down, either.

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.

Eur/usd long trend is down. How could it be otherwise? USA is talking about rate rise inside of 6 months and Euro zone econ is weak and just strarting QE - and Greek debt not worked out. So where will it go? Down of course.
