August 11, 2022----Upcoming Week’s Data that Could Impact Treasury and Mortgage Rates
• Monthly data updates in blue, see below
• Weekly data on Unemployment Claims--Wednesday and Mortgage rates---Thursday
Unemployment claims are available each Wednesday. They have been increasing since the Fed announced its intention to increase interest rates to address inflation concerns. As the weekly claim filings increase, it will eventually slow the growth of the MONTHLY Net New Jobs total.
Mortgage rates are available each Thursday. Rates have been up and down as concerns over inflation and recession. (i.e. soft landing vs a crash).
