At 15:30 (GMT+2), weekly data on the number of initial jobless claims will be released in the US. The indicator measures the number of people who applied for government payments for the first time during the past week. This data is collected by the national 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 in it means that fewer people are being hired. It is expected that the indicator will remain at 225.0K.
