Fundamental view

United States

The number of people in the United States, who filed for unemployment assistance for the first time during the week ended on August 8th, probably increased to 294 000 from 289 000 in the prior week. This is a short-term indicator, reflecting lay-offs in the country. In case the number of initial jobless claims increases more than projected, this would have a bearish effect on the greenback. The Department of Labor is to release the weekly report at 12:30 GMT.

The number of continuing jobless claims dropped to the seasonally adjusted 2 518 000 during the week ended on August 1st, from 2 539 000 in the previous week. This indicator represents the actual number of people unemployed and currently receiving unemployment benefits, who filed for unemployment assistance at least two weeks ago.
