Here Comes Initial Jobless Claims...

The first big datapoint of the day: Initial jobless claims.

Claims are one of our favourite economic datapoints, as they give us a high-frequency look at the labour market.

Mostly claims have remained tame, though there have been some spiky weeks.

Analysts expect 350K claims, down from 352K.

The number comes out at 8:30 AM ET.
