Initial Jobless Claims is a report issued by the U.S. Department of Labour on a weekly basis. 'Initial Claim' means any notice of unemployment filed to request a determination of entitlement to and eligibility for compensation or a second or subsequent period of unemployment with a benefit year or period of eligibility. This report tracks how many claims have been registered for the previous week. It is a good gauge of the U.S. job market.

Gross domestic product (GDP), the featured measure of U.S. output, is the market value of the goods and services produced by labour and property located in the United States, regardless of nationality. GDP is measured as the sum of personal consumption expenditures, gross private domestic investment, net exports of goods and services (exports less imports), and government consumption expenditures and gross investment. GDP excludes intermediate purchases of goods and services by business. Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) measures goods and services purchased by U.S. residents. Gross private domestic investment consists of fixed investment and the change in private inventories. Fixed investment consists of both non-residential fixed investment and residential fixed investment. Government consumption expenditures and gross investment, the measure of government sector final demand, consists of two major components: Current consumption expenditures by general government and gross investment by both general government and government enterprises. There are 3 versions of GDP released a month apart - Advance, Preliminary, and Final. The Advance release is the earliest and thus tends to have the most impact. Quarterly estimates are expressed at seasonally adjusted annual rates.

The primary objective of the European Central Bank's monetary policy is to maintain price stability. The ECB aims at inflation rates of below, but close to, 2% over the medium term. The natural role of monetary policy in the economy is to maintain price stability. Monetary policy can affect real activity only in the shorter term. The central bank is the sole issuer of banknotes and bank reserves. That means it is the monopoly supplier of the monetary base. By virtue of this monopoly, it can set the conditions at which banks borrow from the central bank. Therefore it can also influence the conditions at which banks trade with each other in the money market. The central bank provides funds to the banking system and charges interest. Given its monopoly power over the issuing of money, the central bank can fully determine this interest rate. The change in the official interest rates affects directly money-market interest rates and, indirectly, lending and deposit rates, which are set by banks to their customers.

National Association of Realtor's (NAR) Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) is released during the first week of each month. The index measures housing contract activity. It is based on signed real estate contracts for existing single-family homes, condos and co-ops. A sale is listed as pending when the contract has been signed and the transaction has not closed, but the sale usually is finalized within one or two months of signing. An index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2001, the first year to be examined, and was the first of five consecutive record years for existing-home sales. The Pending Home Sales Index is based on a large national sample, typically representing about 20 percent of transactions for existing-home sales.
