Weekly data on initial jobless claims from the USA will be released at 15:30 (GMT+2). The indicator measures the number of people who applied for unemployment benefits for the first time in the past week. These data are collected by the Department of Labor and published in a weekly report. Initial Jobless Claims indicator is used to measure the state of the labor market, since an increase in the indicator means that fewer people are hired. It is expected that the figure will grow from 199K to 215K.
