Weekly employment data for the US: what to expect?
What will happen?
The United States will release the weekly Initial Jobless Claims on May 13, at 15:30 MT time. This is the earliest economic data of the country that reports the number of people who claimed unemployment insurance for the first time during the previous week. The number of unemployed people is an important signal of overall economic health. That is why the release may bring short-term volatility to the US dollar.
