May have missied a few numbers, but On vacation for another week so doing the best I can :-). There's enough here.
Jobless Claims definitley moving in the wrong direction with a jump of about 90K over the last 2. Job Openings continue a steady climb, still far below the # of unemployed.
In spite of that Small Business Optimism is steady at a decent level.
Housing Starts dropped a bit while Permits had a decent jump and the Index remains steady at a good level.
MFG remains very strong with Industrial Production notching another positive. Capacity Utilization also continues it's streak with an increase to 75.6. Empire State showed a healthy jump while Philly remains strong.
Retail Sales was the most pleasant surprise of the week with a big jump up by 5.3%.
I'll go with a C+ this week with a cautious eye on Jobless Claims. Suck Factor back up to 8.
