Initial Jobless Claims (Dec 1)
Down from the week before, chart still looks like a modest up move has taken place. Still comfortably below the 375-400K level that would signal a slowdown.
Continuing Claims (Nov 24)
Also backing off from last week’s mini spike and not a problem for the fed at current levels.
Mortgage Delinquencies (3Q)
Delinquencies up some, but probably not far from fed expectations.
ICSC Chain Store Sales YoY
These look fine – up a touch and no sign of collapse.
