Despite quite optimistic NFP last week when the indicator increased by 4 800K (vs. the forecast of 3 037K), the weekly unemployment claims for July 2 reached a higher level than expected. While analysts anticipated it to increase by 1 350K, the actual figures showed a rise of 1 427K.
- If the actual level of unemployment claims is lower, the USD will rise;
- If the actual level of unemployment claims is higher, the USD will fall.
