The U.S. dollar fell against its major counterparts in the New York session on Thursday, as weekly jobless claims rose more than expected last week, the highest level since August 2023.

Data from the Labor Department showed that initial jobless claims climbed to 231,000, an increase of 22,000 from the previous week's revised level of 209,000.

Economists had expected jobless claims to inch up to 210,000 from the 208,000 originally reported for the previous week.

The data fuelled hopes that the labor market might be softening.
