Reuters - The jobless claims has just been bizarre here the last three weeks. I'm essentially ignoring it even though I would agree it's a very important indicator. It was the first indicator that told us we had a real slowdown coming. It just doesn't jibe with any of the other economic numbers... I wish there was an explanation as to why it's in a mode where the economy ought to be growing strongly, but all the other indicators are going the other way.
