What To Expect From The Forex Market Next Week 16 – 20 September May 30, 2022 investazor Another week has past and some very interesting readings were published. Wednesday Great Britain has published some very good data from the labor market. Its Claimant Count Change has fallen 32.6K and the Unemployment Rate dropped unexpectedly at 7.7%. The next day Australia reported a rise in its Unemployment Rate of 0.1% and RBNZ’s governor said that it expected a rise in the inflation rate in 2014 and they might have to raise the interest rate. Thursday it was also published the Unemployment Claims for USA at a value of 292K, but it might have been a problem with their computerized systems and this number could be revised next week.
