Initial Jobless Claims improved.

Expectations were that we would actually have 440K Initial Jobless Claims when the data was released this morning for the previous week, but instead, the data released showed only 398K were in fact what was recorded. That is the first time we have been below 400K in almost 2 months. However, it should be noted tha the week before this data's release was revised upwards from 418K to 422K. Still, today's release showed an improvement and at least is in the right direction.

Meantime, the debt ceiling standoff is approaching a critical moment for the Congress and the markets. Stay Tuned.

Tomorrow an important piece of data will be released, which may have a major impact on markets, a first look at 2nd quarter GDP, as well as the Chicago PMI and Michigan Sentiment.
