    Fundamental Analysis: Initial Jobless Claims

    Traders anticipate the publication of the Initial Jobless Claims report
    tomorrow, January 14.
    Initial Jobless Claims is a measure of the number of people who file for
    unemployment benefits for the first time during the given week.
    This data is collected by the Department of Labor, and published as a weekly
    report. The number of jobless claims is used as a measure of the health of
    the job market, as a series of increases indicates that there are fewer
    people being hired.
    On a week-to-week basis, claims are quite volatile.
    Usually, a move of at least 35K in claims, is required to signal a
    meaningful change in job growth.
    A higher than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the
    USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish
    for the USD.
    Analysts predict no change in the reading which will remain at 434.00K.

    Euro Dollar

    For the second day in a row, the Euro did not create any major or
    technically meaningful moves. We maintained a trading range below Monday's
    top 1.4555, and above the Asian session bottom for the same day 1.4452. It
    seems like this trading range is getting tighter & tighter, which is a price
    behavior that usually happens before large moves. The borders of this tight
    area are drawn with the two small trend lines on the hourly chart which are
    at 1.4531 & 1.4464. Thus, breaking any of these levels will move the Euro in
    the direction of the break. If we break the resistance 1.4531 the odds of
    going above 1.46 will be high, where the attractive targets 1.4625 & 1.4678
    await. But if we break the support 1.4464, the Euro will fall again
    targeting 1.4409 first, then 1.4331. And as it is the case with all tight
    ranges, it is highly preferred not to take a bias towards any direction
    before breaking the limits of the tight range.

    Support:
    * 1.4485: the trend line that limits the tight area from below.
    * 1.4409: Fibonacci 50% for the short term.
    * 1.4331: previous well known support/resistance.

    Resistance:
    * 1.4531: the trend line that limits the tight area from above.
    * 1.4625: Nov 3rd low.
    * 1.4678: Fibonacci 50% for the medium term.

    USD/JPY

    Exactly as we have expected, Dollar-Yen broke yesterday's support 91.70 and
    successfully reached the suggested target 90.76, stopping only 5 pips below
    it, before bouncing back above 91. As we can see on the attached chart, this
    pair has bumped into a support that caused it to bounce more than 60 pips
    until now. Reaching 90.76 is expected to provide a chance to create a
    correction for the whole fall from 93.75, which will ideally target 91.87 &
    92.59. But before talking about such a correction we should see a break of
    short term resistance 91.33. If the price goes back to falling, and break
    short term support 90.95, the down trend will continue, and will target
    90.35, and later the important 89.79.

    Support:
    * 90.95: Fibonacci 61.8% for the short term.
    * 90.35: support/resistance area on the 4-hour chart.
    * 89.79: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole rise from 87.35 to 93.75.

    Resistance:
    * 91.33: intraday top.
    * 91.87: Fibonacci 38.2% for the whole move down from 93.75.
    * 94.62: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move down from 93.75.
