Traders carefully examine these studies, as purchasing managers usually get early access to their company’s performance data, which can be a leading indicator of the overall state of the economy.

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. The number of applications for benefits is used to measure the state of the labor market, since an increase means that fewer people are being hired. Weekly data is quite volatile. As a rule, a change, at least in the amount of 35,000, signals significant changes in the growth of the number of jobs. Indicators above the expected are seen as a negative/bearish market for USD, while indicators below the expected represent a positive/bullish direction for USD.
