Today, the Central Statistical Office ( GUS) published a report on the unemployment rate for April 2018. According to analysts’ forecasts, the unemployment rate fell in April this year. up to 6.3% from 6.6% previously, which means that it is currently at the lowest level since November 1991, when unemployment was 5.9%.
In the first quarter of 2018, the economically active population aged 15 and more was at 17 053 thousand, of which 16 344 thous. are employed and 709 thousand unemployed. The professionally passive population was 13 405 thousand.
In addition, according to the Central Statistical Office, the number of unemployed registered in labour offices in April amounted to 1 042.5 thousand. compared to 1 092.2 thous. people a month ago.
The Central Statistical Office also reported that the number of newly registered unemployed was in April this year. 126 thousand compared to 137.3 thousand a month earlier.
As a result of the ongoing from the second half of April this year growth on USDPLN, the pair defeated two technical levels of resistance and reached the vicinity of October highs. Admittedly, no supply reaction has emerged around this resistance. Nevertheless, if this level were rejected, potential drops could even reach the area of the recently defeated resistance that now coincides with the 50% Fibonacci correction.
However, if the currently tested zone is defeated, any increases could even reach the next technical resistance, ie the level of 3.8100.
