    Unemployment Claims Steady, CPI remains tame !!!

    Intial claims for unemployment held steady around the 336,000 mark in this weeks advance report. Continuing claims ticked up but remains below 3 million. Unemployment seems to be stable, not improving but not getting worse.

    CPI remains tame with a +0.1% gain this month. Last month was also revised lower by a tenth to +0.2%. This data, in light of FOMC minutes yesterday is taper positive, expect another $10 billion at the next meeting unless things change for the worse.
