The USA statistics was the focus of our attention yesterday (Initial Jobless Claims 274K vs forecast 260K). Today we expect Non-Farm release.
Europe celebrated the Ascension Day and many European Central Banks did not work. Despite the day off the market was volatile and the pairs EUR/USD and GBP/USD decreased.
The UK published Services PMI that fell more than expected (52.3 vs. expectations 53.5).
Friday is the first working day in Japan after the long holidays. We expect a sharp growth of the yen. Even now, when the US stock market decreased, the USD/JPY showed a growth.
