The weekly report on initial jobless claims is set for release at 8:30 am ET.
Expectations are for the report to show that claims totaled 287,000 last week, down slightly from the prior week’s 294,000.
The 4-week average of initial claims is currently near a post-crisis low and claims are one of the best real-time readings we have on the health of the labour market.
We’ll be back with the live numbers when they drop.
