US Initial Jobless Claims
Earlier during the NY session, the US nonfarm payrolls report was released by the US Department of Labor. The market was expecting it to register a gain of 240K. However, the outcome was on the higher side, as the US nonfarm payrolls increased by 252K. Moreover, the US unemployment rate also decreased from 5.8% to 5.6%. This was strong bullish signal for the US dollar and helped it to a certain extent. However, the upside was contained as the US dollar is already trading around escalated levels. We need to see how it trades in the coming sessions, as the Euro and the British pound might recover ground in the near term.
