US unemployment claims rose higher than expectations which were 345K, last week's numbers were 371K, and today's numbers were 373K. Previous: 371K Forecast: 345K Actual: 373K
This news says a couple things about the US economy. And to refer to points made in last week's article on US unemployment, we can see that the labor force has increased. So, naturally more people are looking for jobs, and businesses are still struggling to hire. It's almost like we have to contradicting factors here which might be clearer in the big picture, but keeping track of this data on a week-to-week can be confusing sometimes.
Recent jobs numbers looks bad in the short term, but the fact that more people are entering the work force and businesses are still aggressively trying to hire is a good sign in the long term. In my opinion, it's like a great transition from civilians living on unemployment to them now out looking for job opportunities. People who were used to working at home are now trying to find opportunities remotely, and for better or worse, businesses will have to adjust to that. So, it is a very weird time in the US and the world, but this mixed sentiment seems like it's all part of a new era of employment, technology in the workplace, and business's adjustment to the new sentiment. In my opinion, this is not really a time to trade (intraday), but it is a time to look to invest because there will be a lot of noise in the short term and this type of environment calls for big picture plays.

NAS100 has a similar setup on the 4H. Two hard rejections from the lows from the two recent candles suggest a move higher. A close around this price would be a good sign for tech bulls, but a dip lower means support would be hit around $14,440.
The dollar index is moving synchronously with the market and is down close to 0.50% on the day. Price could come test a supportive trend line on the 4H, but if it dips, price would probably test additional support around $91.441.
