Sterling Strengthens Sharply Ahead of U.K.’s Job Data, 25+ PIP Volatility Likely in GBP Parity; April 20, 2021

U.K. Claimant Count Change & Unemployment Rate

Today U.K. has scheduled to release job data at 0600 GMT/1130 IST. It’s the first indication of the employment situation, released a month earlier than the Unemployment Rate. Although it’s generally viewed as a lagging indicator, the number of unemployed people is an important signal of overall economic health because consumer spending is highly correlated with labor-market conditions. Unemployment is also a major consideration for those steering the country’s monetary policy. If the Actual data of Jobless Claims and Unemployment Rate come less than forecasted, it will be beneficial to GBP.

Let’s see how GBP has reacted during the previous data release:
