Initial Jobless Claims – United States

The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits fell last week, a sign the labor market was holding firm despite tensions between the United States and it’s trading partners that have led to tit-for-tat tariffs.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits slipped 2K to a seasonally adjusted 210K for the week ended Aug. 18, the Labor Department said on Thursday.

It was the third straight week of declines for claims, which have dropped so low that economists have scrambled for explanations. In July, claims fell to their lowest level since 1969 even though the workforce is much larger than in prior decades.

Economists polled by Reuters ahead of Thursday’s report had forecast claims rising to 215K in the latest week.  Generally speaking, less number of claimants filing for unemployment allowance indicates a bullish trend for the US Dollar (USD) whereas increasing numbers of claimants imply a bearish market for the US Dollar (USD).

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, buying the pair around current levels may be a good strategy in short to medium term.
