Dollar unchanged even after better than expected Jobless claims
By James Brandt - ACM Advanced Currency Markets, Geneva, Switzerland
News and Events:
The dollar remained unchanged today even though weekly jobless claims came out better than expected, at 319k versus an expected 325k. With market sentiment in favor of the Euro, traders expecting a Fed rate cut next week and a long string of weak economic data from the U.S., the dollar remains at record lows. Last week's Non-farm payrolls indicated that the credit troubles in the U.S. have began to take a considerable toll on the broader economy.
Today we look to a final barrage of economic data, namely Current Account Balance, Retail Sales, and U.S. Import and Export prices. Estimates remain on the downside, with 0.2% growth expected from retail sales, down from 0.4% last month. Many traders eye 1.4000 for the Euro ahead of an expected Fed rate cut.
