US Initial Jobless Claims

Earlier during the NY session, the Initial Jobless Claims was released by the US Department of Labor. The market was expecting it to register a decline from 298K to 290K. However, the outcome was very a bit lower, as the US Initial Jobless Claims decreased by only 4K to 294K. Moreover, the US Continuing Jobless Claims came in lower at 2.452M, compared with the last revised reading of 2.351M.

London Session Recap

The London session was very production today, but the theme was same, as the Euro and the British pound continued to trade lower. There were some releases lined up in the Euro area and the UK including the Euro area retail sales, Consumer Confidence, Industrial Confidence, Producer Price Index (PPI), UK Halifax House Price Index and the BOE interest rate decision. None of the mentioned events were positive enough to lift the Euro or the British pound against the US dollar. The only positive report in the Euro area was the retail sales released by the Eurostat. The market was expecting it to increase by 0.1% in November 2014, compared with the preceding month. However, the outcome was a positive one, as the Euro area retail sales increased by 0.6%. There was a negative report as well, as the German Factory orders, which was released by the Deutsche Bundesbank registered a decline of 2.4% In November 2014. Overall, the Euro traded lower during the London session.

Moreover, in the UK the House Price Index released by the HBOS. The outcome was mixed, as the monthly change came above the expectation, but the yearly change came below the forecast. Furthermore, the BOE interest rate decision was also a nonevent and failed to help the GBPUSD pair.

Technically, the GBPUSD pair fell below the 1.5100 support area and traded as low as 1.5035. The British pound buyers failed on more than one occasion to take the pair higher and it look like it might continue trading lower.
