Forex News: USDJPY Neutral at U.S. Jobless Claim Increase

Forex News: USDJPY Neutral at U.S. Jobless Claim Increase

Courtney Edwards,

The Takeaway:USD Jobless Claims, Personal Income (Jan) > Initial Jobless Claims 368,000 versus 350,000 expected, from 330,000 > Personal Income +2.6% versus +0.8% expected > USDJPY Neutral

According to the Labor Department, initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 38,000 to a seasonally adjusted 368,000 in the week ended Jan. 26. Economists at Reuters expected claims to increase to 350,000. Initial claims dropped sharply in the week ended Jan. 12 and maintained a downtrend in the following week. The four-week moving average for new claims gained 250 to 352,000, suggesting improvement in labor market conditions.

Personal income for Americans also rose last month +2.6%, the Commerce Department said Thursday. That was the largest increase since December 2004, and above analyst’s expectations for a +0.8% gain. The rise in incomes suggests total consumer spending power entered the New Year strong.
