United States

Feds Fischer statement

At 10:30 GMT the Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, Stanley Fischer, is expected to take a statement. Limited-to-moderate volatility of the currency pairs containing the US dollar is usually present during his speeches.

Job Openings

The number of job openings in the United States probably increased to 5.410 million in November from a month ago, according to the median forecast by experts. In October 5.383 million job openings were reported, or the lowest number since August. This indicator refers to all job positions that are open, but not filled on the last business day of the month. Job openings are part of the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS), which gathers data from about 16 400 non-farm establishments including retailers and manufacturers, as well as federal, state, and local government entities in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The survey assesses the unmet demand for labor in the labor market. Higher-than-projected number of openings will usually have a limited bullish effect on the US dollar. The Bureau of Labor Statistics is to release the official data at 15:00 GMT.
