November 23, 2022 Headlines

Treasury yields are 3 to 6 bps higher this morning following relatively light overnight trading as Japan was closed. Initial jobless claims came in higher than expected, rising by 17,000 to 240,000, the median forecast had called for a reading of 225,000. Continuing claims rose by 48,000 to 1.551 million. All in all, the labor market continues to hum along with jobless claims numbers still below historical averages. The market will be interested to see if the Fed minutes from November FOMC meeting give any indication of a slow down in the pace of tightening. Expectations are that the Fed will be unified in a decision to raise rates, but the question is will there be consensus to raise rates higher than expected.
