A higher than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD.

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.

Initial jobless claims have been consistently below the forecast for quite some time. Likewise, I can't see PPI / CPI going down, either.

Bounces of EUR/USD will happen. The trend is down and will remain down as the fundamentals have not changed. The Euro has tremendous downward pressure, and the ECB wants the Euro down- the policy is they are just going to QE, and WANT it down...its going down by end of year 1.09 or even less. Worry in USA perhaps about 2 strong dollar will cause bounces - thats it.

Eur/usd long trend is down. How could it be otherwise? USA is talking about rate rise inside of 6 months and Euro zone econ is weak and just strarting QE - and Greek debt not worked out. So where will it go? Down of course.
