Dollar lifts again after US jobless claims slightly beat expectations-EUR/USD slips

The latest US weekly jobless claims data has now been released and it more or less matched forecasts, but with a slight beat. However, we are talking small fractions, which is neither here nor there. Just ahead of the release, the dollar was tracking lower versus the Yen, but it has now bounced back, not because the data was great, but because it had drifted lower ahead of the outcome, in case it was not. So, with that USD/JPY rebound has come a further downside move in the GBP/USD and the EUR/USD. Earlier today the EUR/USD rose to 1.0789 . It is now testing 1.0750; The current range on the week is still clearly intact though and so far that has been entirely covered inside 1.07 and 1.08. The EUR/USD is just now trading at 1.0752
