Unemployment Claims (USD) 1:30pm

Comment: Despite the $2 trillion stimulus package approved for US businesses yesterday by the senate, cases of COVID 19 still rising continues in the US which scares more investors away; likewise, the US unemployment claims which is to come today is projected by the analyst to rise up to 1m people, seeing that companies are laying off staff during this period; hence, a global sell-off on the US dollar is expected. Furthermore, the EURO zone is set to approve 156 billion euros for the citizen healthcare while also keeping companies afloat, which is relatively a better decision than what the US senate made. Hence, a bullish move on the euro is expected today.
