April 2015 JOLTS report: another sign of a maturing expansion?

By: New_Deal_democrat

The JOLTS report is a more detailed look at the labor market than either payrolls or jobless claims, breaking the overall payrolls number, with a one month delay, into job openings, actual hires, voluntary quits, and layoffs and other discharges. The drawback of this series is that it only started in 2000, so the number of prior business cycles we can compare = 1. Read more

The dollar was mostly lower in N.Y. trade on Tuesday, though overall, inside of relatively narrow ranges. EUR-USD traded into 1.1215 lows early in the session, before making its way toward 1.1290 into the London close. Decent EU growth data supported the euro, though with no resolution in sight to the Greece issue, EUR-USD is liable to remain largely rudderless for the time being. Read more

EUR-USD has settled back under 1.1300 after retreating from a five-day high at 1.1345. An intraday low was left at 1.1255, and a subsequence retaking of the 1.1300 level proved fleeting.

The dollar has traded softer. EUR-USD clocked a five-day high at 1.1345 following a run through buy-stop orders around 1.1310, bringing last Thursday's peak at 1.1379 back into scope, with the May-15 peak at 1.1466 beyond here. A run of encouraging data, and perky May inflation data, out of the Eurozone has enabled to the euro to hold its own against the dollar, despite the rekindled Fed tightening narrative following the strong May U.S. Read more
