Initial claims figs this morning in the US, nothing unusual about that for a Thursday.
What is unusual is I have noticed a complete lack of focus on the release, haven’t seen one Tweet or a blog post re the numbers due. Don’t think this lack of focus is overly significant, but it is unusual.
From the Forex Factory Eco Calendar, expectations are for 370K.
EDIT: Figs came in at 386K … yuck.
EDIT2: 10am figs … More yuck:
