The Fed Reserve meeting at Jackson Hole this week, a key event for investors


Significant events to watch:

-USA (USD): New Home Sales

-USA (USD): Initial Jobless Claims

USA (USD): U.S. New Home Sales – New Home Sales measures the annualized number of new single-family homes that were sold during the previous month. This report tends to have more impact when it’s released ahead of Existing Home Sales because the reports are tightly correlated. The previous data was 697k while the forecast was 725k.

The report is due Wednesday, August 23, 2023 19:30 GMT

USA (USD): U.S. Initial Jobless Claims – Initial Jobless Claims measures the number of individuals who filed for unemployment insurance for the first time during the past week. This is the earliest U.S. economic data, but the market impact varies from week to week. The previous actual data was 248k while the forecast was 230k.

The report is due Thursday, August 24, 2023 18:00 GMT
