Revised Prior

US Durable Goods Orders (MAR)





US Durables Ex Transportation (MAR)





US Initial Jobless Claims (APR 19)





US Continuing Claims (APR 12)





The US Dollar rose higher in Forex Markets, as the United States Commerce Department reported the strongest rise in durable goods orders in 4 months in March, and durable goods orders excluding transportation items rose the most in over a year. Also released this morning, initial jobless claims were reported higher than expected for the week of April 19, but continuing claims unexpectedly fell for the prior week.

Durable goods are items that are intended to last at least three years, and an increase in durable goods orders may indicate an upcoming rise in manufacturing production. Following the March Fed meeting, Chair Yellen said that there is still considerable slack in the economy. Therefore, an improvement in manufacturing could lead to less accommodative monetary policy and send the US Dollar higher.
