The US economy continues to pump out positive data points with the latest coming from the labor market. Year-over-year NSA claims improved to -9.8%, a sizable improvement than the -6.0% and -5.9% readings over the last two weeks. Remember that a smaller number (i.e. more negative) is better in this instance. With labor conditions accelerating since December, the overall improvement is a welcome addition to our theme of #GrowthStabilizing.
