Last week was very interesting for the markets, as we saw the releases of the US Inflation and Disney’s earnings report. So let's see what we should await this week!
USD: the market awaits US GDP & unemployment claims
The US final GDP and unemployment claims will be published on June 25 at 15:30 MT time.
Instruments to trade: EUR/USD; USD/JPY; GBP/USD; USD/CAD
The gross domestic product is the most significant economic indicator. It reveals the broadest picture of economic activity and financial health. Together with unemployment claims these indicators will help traders to assess current economic conditions and the real state of the US economy. This event will make the market really volatile. In normal conditions the US dollar will gain, if the data comes better than expected. However, now the US dollar is a safe-haven currency and it tends to rise, when the data is dire.
