British Pound Unlikely to Heed UK Jobless Claims Data

British Pound Unlikely to Heed UK Jobless Claims Data

Talking Points:

  • UK jobless claims unlikely to inspire strong British Pound response
  • Yen sinks, commodity Dollars rise as S&P 500 futures trade higher
  • Looming US data may limit follow-through on overnight momentum

UK jobless claims data headlines an otherwise quiet economic calendar in European trading hours. A small increase is expected, but the outcome seems unlikely to generate lasting follow-through from the British Pound considering its limited impact on the direction of near-term BOE monetary policy.

The Japanese Yen underperformed in overnight trade, with prices mirroring a rebound in S&P 500 futures and hinting at recovering risk appetite as the catalyst at work. Tellingly, the sentiment-linked Australian, Canadian and New Zealand Dollars proved to be best-supported.

A lull in high-profile event risk offers relatively few barriers to disrupt established momentum, hinting that overnight moves may carry forward in the hours ahead. The degree of follow-through may ultimately prove limited however as traders look ahead to top-tier US data on the horizon.

Losing money trading in the FX market? This might be why.
