German Unemployment Rate Remains Stable In December

Germany's unemployment rate remained unchanged in December, the labor force survey from Destatis showed Thursday.

The jobless rate held steady at a seasonally adjusted 3.2 percent in December. In the same period last year, the unemployment rate was 3.3 percent.

On an unadjusted basis, the unemployment rate rose marginally to 3.2 percent from 3.1 percent a month ago.

Nearly 1.40 million people were unemployed in December, which was an increase of 78,000 people compared with the same month a year earlier.

At the same time, employment decreased 145,000 or 0.3 percent in December. The monthly decline was stronger than the relevant average of the past five years.

The Federal Employment Agency is slated to publish Germany's unemployment data later today. The number of people out of work is forecast to rise 5,000 in January after increasing 8,000 in December.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
