Thursday preview: US jobless claims, euro area money supply growth in focus

By Alexander Bueso

The market spotlight on the next to last trading session of the year would be on the US jobs market.
At 1330 GMT, the Department of Labor was scheduled to release weekly unemployment claims figures for the week ending on 24 December.

Nonetheless, the data were likely to be muddied by seasonal adjustment problems around Christmas.

In the euro area meantime, at 0900 GMT the European Central Bank would release M3 money supply growth data for November.

No major economic releases were expected in the UK or Japan.
