US jobless claims: Thursday, 12:30. This weekly barometer of jobs has been very stable of late, coalescing around 240K. A similar measure is on the cards now. Note that the report falls within the week that the BLS makes its survey for the NFP. A small rise f240K to 244K is estimated. 

Bill Dudley talks: Thursday, 14:00. The President of the New York Fed is considered No.3 at the powerful institution. He is relatively close to the views of Fed Chair Janet Yellen and his response to the jobs report, including wages, will be of importance.

  • EURUSD



Update: We remain the same.
The pair is traded right below a strong resistance level that could be found at 1.1900 so we believe that as long as the pair is traded below it, it is highly recommended to go short targeting the level of 1.1600. On the other hand, breaching the level of 1.1600 would open the door for further downward movements during the week that the pair may reach the level of 1.1500.
