MBS Day Ahead: Busiest Day of Economic Data This Week

Today’s calendar of scheduled events is the busiest of the week with Jobless Claims at 8:30am followed by Philly Fed and Existing Home Sales at 10am. All the reports are important as Jobless Claims covers the week that coincides with the data collection for Nonfarm Payrolls. This doesn’t guarantee a big reaction, but increases the chances that it will be slightly bigger than normal. Philly Fed is always a potential market mover and Existing Home Sales is one of the more widely followed housing metrics. In the current case, some traders may be looking for confirmation of recent better-than-expected housing data.
