       Initial Jobless Claims, for the week ended May 30th, fell -8K to 276K (consensus 278K) and the prior week was revised up from 282K to 284K. This is the thirteenth consecutive week of claims below 300K which is consistent with an improving labor market. The four-week average increased to 274,750 from 272,000 prior. Continuing Claims fell -30K to 2.196 Million (consensus 2207K) reaching the lowest level since November 11th, 2000. According to the final Q1 estimate Productivity fell at a -3.1% annual rate and Unit Labor Costs increased +6.7%. Treasuries are hovering just above yesterday's 2:00 PM (PT) close level following the largely in-line data and the curve has bull flattened with 2s10s down -2.2 bps. Tomorrow we get Nonfarm Payrolls and consensus is for 225K new jobs, no gains in earnings and a flat Unemployment Rate at 5.4%.
