Today, Europe's inflation data will be published, where consumer prices are expected to increase from 1.6% to 2.0%. It is worth considering that the level of 2.0% has already been confirmed by a preliminary assessment, thus confirming the data may not have the desired effect on the market.

During the US trading session, weekly data on applications for America's unemployment benefits will be released, which is forecasted to further decline.

  • The volume of initial applications for benefits may be reduced from 376 thousand to 359 thousand.
  • The volume of repeated applications for benefits may be reduced from 3,499 thousand to 3,430 thousand.

Applications reflect the number of citizens who are not currently working and receiving unemployment benefits. This indicator is considered the state of the labor market, where the growth of the indicator negatively affects the level of consumption and economic growth. The reduction in claims for benefits has a positive effect on the labor market.

Looking at the EUR/USD trading chart, one can see that the euro's downward interest will remain in the market, but the quote is still within the psychological level of 1.1950/1.2000/1.2050. In order for the downward trend cycle to extend to new levels, the quote must hold below the level of 1.1950 for an H4 time frame. Otherwise, the stagnation in the historical level of 1.2000 may develop into a technical pullback.
