The labor market is what makes the American economy robust and gives it endurance and prosperity. Keeping the hand on the pulse of the employment dynamics in the US gives you the right direction in drawing correct fundamental perception of the American economy and make projections on the long-term horizons for the USD. The initial jobless claims announced weekly in the US affect the Forex market quite intensely, so watch this indicator: if there is any sign that the mild recovery curve is distorted, it will press on the greenback; otherwise, healthy figures above the forecast will make it rise.
- If the figures exceed expectations, that may push the USD.
- If the labor market underperforms, the USD may go down.
