U.S. Employment Data was Better than Expected

The number of new jobless claims in the United States continued to drop to 553,000 last week, compared to the market's original expectation of 549,000, a decrease of 13,000 from the previous month. During the period, the number of people who continued to claim unemployment benefits increased by 9,000 to 3.66 million, higher than market expectations of 3.614 million. The ideal employment data in the United States is reflected in the huge fiscal stimulus and extensive vaccination. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the job market is gradually diminishing.
