UPDATE:

Initial jobless claims have come in a tad weaker than expectations.

Analysts had been expecting a reading of 365K, but instead they came in at 372K.

Last week’s number was revised up a touch to 368K.

It’s not a huge miss or anything, but it’s a touch disappointing.

The full announcement is here.
