  • Initial claims rise 1k to 497k, with 40-50k still accounted for by hurricanes (4wk avg 474k).
  • Continuing claims, not effected by hurricanes, rise another 48k to new cycle high of 3542k (4wk avg 3528k).
  • Continuing claims more highly correlated to duration of unemployment and wage demands.
  • Consensus NFP tomorrow is -105k; based on claims, Conf Board and ISM surveys, risks seem more in -150k area.
