U.S. jobless claims increasingly an outlier - Wells Fargo Securities

According to ActionForex, analysts at Wells Fargo Securities note that the second consecutive increase in weekly claims to 744K and the modest increase in the four-week average stand in contrast to nearly all other reads on the labor market at present, which point to the recovery progressing.

"Initial jobless claims rose for a second straight week, coming in at 744K. The increase over the past two weeks was enough to nudge the four-week average up for the first time since January of this year."

"The recent rise in claims stands in contrast to almost all other readings of the labor market at present. Hiring has picked up substantially, with 916K jobs added in March. Business surveys corroborate stronger job growth, with the ISM manufacturing and services employment indices both jumping last month."

"In other words, there is little to suggest that the labor market recovery is once again stalling, let alone backsliding, as recent claims figures hint. Instead, the sideways move likely reflects the usual weekly noise - made especially difficult this time of year by the variable timing of Easter - as well as ongoing issues related to backlogs, substantial churn in some industries and even fraud."

"Four million workers were receiving regular benefits through the week ending March 27, down from almost 23M at the height of the crisis. That, however, misses the growing number of workers unemployed for six months or more, which hit a cycle high of 43% in March; there were another 6.4M workers on extended benefit programs though March 20."

"Meanwhile, continuing claims under the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, the emergency program to cover gig workers and the self-employed among others, was little changed. All told, continuing claims totaled 18.2M in the most recent week that data are available across all programs and points to unemployment insurance remaining a substantial source of household income at this time."

Upozorenje o rizicima

Izvršenje trgovinskih operacija sa finansijskim instrumentima upotrebom marginalne trgovine pruža velike mogućnosti i omogućava investitorima ostvarivanje visokih prihoda. Međutim, takav vid trgovine povezan je sa potencijalno visokim nivoom rizika od gubitka sredstava. Проведение торговых операций на финансовых рынках с маржинальными финансовыми инструментами открывает широкие возможности, и позволяет инвесторам, готовым пойти на риск, получать высокую прибыль, но при этом несет в себе потенциально высокий уровень риска получения убытков. Iz tog razloga je pre započinjanja trgovine potrebno odlučiti o izboru odgovarajuće investicione strategije, uzimajući u obzir raspoložive resurse.
