U.S. initial jobless claims dropped 10k to 202k in the March 30 week.
U.S. initial jobless claims dropped 10k to 202k in the March 30 week following the 4k drop to 212 previously (revised from 211k). The 4-week moving average fell to 213.5k after sliding to 217.25k the week before. Continuing claims declined 38k to 1,717k in the March 23 week after bouncing 11k to 1,755k in the March 16 week (revised from 1,756k). The data have been beset by various distortions since late last year, but the slide in claims brings us back to a 49-year low, with the level down from the 14-month high of 244k in the January 25k MLK holiday week.
