Us Weekly Jobless Claims Jump

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has already been posted.

The latest US weekly jobless data showed 454,000 new claims added, well ahead of an expected 407,000 and up from 403,000 previously - this is the largest week-on-week rise since the start of November.

And durable goods orders for December fell 2.5 percent on the previous month, confounding expectations for a 1.6-percent rise, although the previous month’s 0.3-percent fall was upgraded from 1.3 percent.

US pending home sales figures were cheerier but illustrated continued housing market concerns. December transactions rose two percent month-on-month, above an anticipated 0.9-percent rise. But this was down from 3.1 percent in November - which itself was revised down from 3.5 percent - and from 10.4 percent in October.

Must have been the snow... no wait..

A. N. Economist said 'This is unexpected.'

It must be nice to live in world of constant surprises- the world of the economist must be one long round of novelty, excitement and thrills.

Handy if you have premature ejaculation though "Eeee love that was really unexpected" "That's all right sweetie it's not your fault, it's your profession that's to blame".
