08:50 EDTThe flat U.S. initial claims figure
The flat U.S. initial claims figure in the first of November sustained last week's 16k pop to an unrevised 276k to leave the measure further above the 259k October BLS survey week reading and 255k cycle-low in July. Claims are reversing some of the odd tightness through October, though levels remain firm. Claims are entering November above the 263k October average, but near previous averages of 269k in September, 275k in August, and 272k in July. Next week's BLS survey week reading may exceed recent BLS readings of 259k in October, 264k in September, 277k in August and 255k in July. Analysts expect a 200k November nonfarm payroll rise that undershoots the 271k October surge but that beats the 171k Q3 average monthly gain, versus a similar 206k average for 2015 overall. Payrolls face only modest upside risk from a tight claims and a firm ADP trajectory. Yet, producer sentiment has reversed the June-July bounce and Michigan sentiment and most other confidence measures have fallen since July despite counter-swings for the consumer confidence index. The vehicle assembly rate has fallen since the 13.6 M July cycle-high, but vehicle sales rose in September and October to an 18.1 M cycle-high.

08:40 EDTU.S. initial jobless claims were unchanged at 276k in the November 7 week
U.S. initial jobless claims were unchanged at 276k in the November 7 week from the October 31 print. That brought the 4-week average up to 267.75k from 262.75k. Continuing claims roes 5k to 2,174k in the week ended October 31 from a revised 23k increase to 2,169k previously (was 2,163k).

07:45 EDTN.Y. FX Outlook
N.Y. FX Outlook: EUR-USD dipped under 1.0700 following comments from ECB's Draghi, who said downside risks are "clearly visible", and that a turnaround in core inflations has weakened. USD-JPY meanwhile, moved back over 123.00 as weak China loan data prompted calls for further BoJ (and PBoC) stimulus. USD-CAD traded over 1.3300, as oil prices fell to nearly three-week lows on Wednesday. The U.S. calendar reveals weekly jobless claims at 8:30 EST, and weekly EIA petroleum inventory data at 11:00 EST. Fedspeak will highlight as well, with Yellen, Lacker, Evans and Dudley all set to speak today.
07:00 EDTFX Update: The euro continued to chop around
FX Update: The euro continued to chop around at the behest of ECB speakers, with Draghi today saying that downside risks are "clearly visible" and that the central bank was ready to act. Eurozone industrial production also disappointed at -0.3% m/m, against a median forecast for a -0.1% outcome. EUR-USD left a low at 1.0691, leaving yesterday's trend nadir at 1.0674 untroubled before settling back in the mid-to-low 1.07s, still about 0.25% down on the day. Near-term downside potential appears to have been curtailed by a speculative market already running an extreme net short exposure to the euro. Elsewhere, USD-JPY plied a narrow path near to 123.00. AUD-USD consolidated slightly lower in European trade, around 0.7130, after a 1%-plus rally in Sydney trade left a six-day peak at 0.7154, which was catalysed by a stellar jobs report out of Australia. The October employment report showed a rise of 58.6k, nearly triple the median forecast, while the unemployment rate dove to 5.9% from 6.2%. Not for the first time, the credibility of Australian labour statistics has been called into question by at least some economists, although few doubt that the validity of the underlying trend.
