Unemployment claims – the last piece to the puzzle

Psychological barrier 0.91 was not so easy to overcome – even quite positive FOMC minutes were not able to help the pair at first. Nevertheless, the pair still have potential to move up, but the catalyst must be even stronger. By the moment we have one of that kind – the Non-Farm Payrolls, which are expected to be quite positive.

Today we will get the last piece of the puzzle – unemployment claims. If the number is lower than expected, we may see the move to 0.9131 resistance level followed by 0.9156.
