EUR/USD. February 05, 2021 Euro keeps updating new lows

The euro continues to decline at the end of the first week of February: the current quotation of the EUR/USD pair is 1.1950. The main pressure on the European currency rate is exerted by weak economic indicators from Europe and pessimistic forecasts regarding further economic recovery due to the preservation of lockdown regimes in some eurozone countries.

At the same time, the US dollar was supported by yesterday's data on the number of applications for unemployment benefits: the figure fell to 779 thousand against the forecast of 828 thousand and the previous value of 812 thousand. Such figures are a very positive signal for the American economy.

Today it is worth paying attention to the publication of data on the employment market for January. The forecast assumes that unemployment will remain unchanged at 6.7%, and the number of jobs outside the agricultural sector will increase by 85 thousand after a decline in December by 140 thousand. Average hourly wages may rise by 0.3% m/m after the previous growth of 0.8%. Thus, the stronger this statistic is, the more confident the dollar will feel.
