Today's Economic Calendar

  • Jobless claims data in the spotlight

  • China's services PMI from Markit to be released overnight

Equity indices from Europe and the United States try to recover in premarket trade ahead of European session launch. DAX is seen opening more or less flat. When it comes to data, the key point of the day will be release of US jobless claims data. Reading is expected to come in millions rather than thousands once again. Apart from that, traders may want to follow newsflow as chatter of US involvement in Saudi-Russia price war gave crude price a lift.

European & US session

10:00 am GMT - Euro area, PPI inflation for February. Expected: -0.7% YoY. Previous: -0.5% YoY

1:30 pm GMT - US, jobless claims. Jobless claims data released last week showed a massive increase. The data highlights how big is the coronavirus impact on the US economy.

However, some institutions, like for example Goldman Sachs, expect claims to surpass 5 million.

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.
