Number of initial applications for unemployment benefits in the United States
The Unemployment Benefit Application determines the number of people who applied for unemployment benefits for the first time during the past week. This data is collected by the Ministry of Labor, and published in a weekly report.

As a rule, a change, at least in the amount of 35,000, signals significant changes in the growth of the number of jobs. Higher-than-expected indicators are seen as a negative/bear market for USD, while lower-than-expected indicators represent a positive/bullish direction for USD.
