New weekly jobless claims unexpectedly rose last week, ending a three-week streak of improvements.

The Labor Department released its latest weekly jobless claims report Thursday at 8:30 a.m. ET. Here were the main metrics from the print compared to consensus estimates compiled by Bloomberg:

Initial jobless claims, week ended Feb. 12: 248,000 vs. 218,000 expected and a revised 225,000 during prior week

Continuing claims, week ended Feb. 5: 1.593 million vs. 1.605 million expected, and a revised 1.619 million during prior week

Even with the rise in filings last week, jobless claims hovered near pre-pandemic levels, given that 2019’s weekly average of new claims was approximately 220,000. In February last year, jobless claims were still coming in at a weekly rate of about 800,000 as virus-related pressures weighed on the labor market.

Initial jobless claims edged higher in January to near 300,000 around the time that Omicron cases surged to a record level in the U.S. Though the virus-induced impact appeared as a brief bump higher in the weekly jobless claims data, the latest monthly jobs report showed surprising resilience. Non-farm payrolls soaring by a much greater-than-expected 467,000 in January while the labor force participation rate rose more than expected.

“The Omicron wave triggered a brief but startling spike in initial jobless claims, but payroll growth slowed only marginally in January, and the initial data for February from Homebase point to a rebound,” Ian Shepherdson, chief economist for Pantheon Macroeconomics, wrote in a note. “At the same time, we are becoming increasingly convinced that the long-awaited rebound in labor participation is now underway, especially among women, who left the labor force in disproportionate numbers when schools and child care were closed.”

“Participation is unlikely to return to its pre-COVID level, thanks in part to early retirement among older people, who have seen big increases in the value of their homes and other assets, but we hope it will rise far enough to ease the pressure on wage growth,” he added.

This week’s jobless claims data also coincides with the survey week for the February jobs report, serving as an advanced indicator of the strength of the labor market heading into that print.

But while labor market data remain an important signal of the health of the broader economy, for policymakers, these reports have been overshadowed by the decades-high prints on inflation emerging as of late. With consumer prices soaring at the fastest rate in four decades, Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) members have now appeared to shift their focus to bringing down inflation rather than further stoking the labor market, which has already shown significant progress in bringing many back to work and providing ample opportunities for workers to switch jobs.

“At the January meeting, the FOMC strongly signaled conditions were ripe for rate hikes starting in March by stressing the risks of persistent, above target inflation and the progress made in the labor market,” Sam Bullard, managing director and senior economist at Wells Fargo Corporate and Investment Banking, wrote in a note. “For now, we continue to think the most likely outcome is that the Fed will act in a ‘measured’ way, with 25 bps hikes.”

What is MM-ETF (S&P 500 of MMF) [$METF] Part. 1 [Video]

1:27 Introduction2:17 MM ETF - Game Plan3:54 How does it work?4:22 How is this different then other DAO Forks?5:30 MMF will back $METF TOKEN5:58 5 main strategies for Growth!6:34 Key Focus is Sustainability7:10 MMF will back $METF8:15 What strategies will the team use to back $METF12:03 ConclusionHere is (Part. 1) of a 2 part series on "MM ETF"In this video we will read through a quick briefing together so you can understand the basics and the main goal of "MM ETF".Hope this video can help you get a better understanding of the use case scenario, and what the over function of the protocol will be. The M̶M̶D̶A̶O̶ MM ETF product will be launched to achieve this protocol-owned-liquidity goal. Through the use of a bonding system, users will sell their liquidity tokens to our M̶M̶D̶A̶O̶ MM ETF where users will receive a $METF token. This $METF token can then be used for single staking to earn the premium earned through the selling of bonds.Unlike traditional rebasing DAOs inspired by Olympus, our solution only seeks to borrow the concept of accumulating POL through selling bonds at a premium. There will be no rebasing mechanism as it is generally too complicated for the laymen to understand. Instead, we will be implementing a staking mechanism. Also, it generally results in overinflation in circulating supply at the beginning before the project has amassed sufficient liquidity (which results in huge dumps) before the project is ready. Most importantly, the main token to be used as backing will not be $DAI (as opposed to what all projects currently do), but $MMF will be used. Each $METF token that exists in circulation will always be backed 1 to 1 $MMF minimally.The team will be placing all POL that has been accumulated thus far from trading fees (~$1mil USD), and will continue using POL from trading fees to back the $METF token. We currently have the highest trading volume on Cronos (attached below data from dexscreener) and we expect this POL from trading fees to increase exponentially as our platform increase in user base and consequently, trading volume.Also, the team will grow the token backing through the use of 4 main strategies outlined below. With a total of 4 main strategies (trading fees POL, yield generation, decentralized venture capital, partnerships that increases accumulation), we will be the first DAO to be able to aggressively increase token backing as opposed to the current narrative for all Ohm forks where token prices are skydiving.This is a long term game that we are playing in order to accumulate POL. This is why we will not adopt crazy bond discounts of 10%. We look to ATTRACT ONLY users who firmly believe in our ecosystem by not providing a high bond ROI. Users who hold $METF will benefit in the mid to long term from an increasing token backing as the treasury grows. Key focus is on sustainability.The MM ETFwill seek to sell bonds for the following types of assets: $MMF, $SVN, METF-MMF LP, MMF-CRO LP. Our concept is different compared to what all other Ohm forks are doing where they seek to accept DAI tokens.Why these tokens? Because we are backed by the $MMF token, it is only sensible to accumulate $MMF tokens to grow the backing. Since $SVN tokens are pegged 1:1 to $MMF, it achieves the same task of becoming backing for $METF. METF-MMF LPs are important to facilitate price stability and trades for the $METF token. MMF-CRO LPs are the bedrock of our entire MM ecosystem, and we will seek to accumulate that as well.The $METF token is backed by the $MMF token, and hence we seek to accumulate $MMF tokens to increase the backing over time. To do so, the team has multiple strategies that will be implemented to ensure that the $MMF tokens backing $METF increase over time, increasing the intrinsic value of $METF.The team will utilise the funds generated from bonds to generate yields. This will include the use of high-yielding auto-compounded vaults on MMO to earn $MMF and $MMO. At the same time, because each $METF token is backed by the $MMF token, a larger fund allocation will be prioritised towards svn.finance to provide liquidity for the SVN-MMF pair as this will exponentially grow treasury (especially since each SVN is pegged 1:1 MMF, and hence works perfectly as treasury backing).MMFinance will deepen its partnership with all our partners, including Croissant Games with their battle tested RNG solutions to integrate its games to allow play-to-win games directly against the MM ETFtreasury to exponentially grow the treasury of $MMF, $SVN, $METF tokens to further increase backing. https://twitter.com/DuceLeehttps://www.instagram.com/averagecryptoguy420/Follow Mad Meerkat FinanceTwitter: https://twitter.com/MMFcryptoTelegram Group: https://t.me/MMFcryptoAnnouncement Channel: https://t.me/MMFannPrice Channel: https://t.me/MMFPriceWebsite: http://mm.finance/Medium: https://medium.com/@MMFinance#MMFINANCE #MMF #CRONOS

How People Cheat The Stock Market | The Problem With Jon Stewart Podcast | Apple TV+ [Video]

The Problem With Jon Stewart is now streaming on Apple TV+https://theproblem.link/StocksEpisodeListen to the full podcast episode here:https://theproblem.link/RobJacksonFormer SEC commissioner Rob Jackson joins Jon to unpack the Problem(s) with the Stock Market, including why your average investor is basically trading in the dark, and the blatant lobbying that keeps Wall Street from ever facing consequences when they cheat (which they do A LOT).Some terms in this episode you may not know but should know:Arbitrage: Exploiting a price difference of the same asset. It’s like buying avocados at the supermarket for $1 each and selling them at the hipster farmer’s market for double.Citadel, which is an investment company. Citadel is a market maker – meaning they help investors buy and sell securities, using the pool of shares they own. They’re basically a middle man, with access to highly important information.Dark pools are private exchanges for trading securities that are not accessible by the investing public.Options trading is buying and selling of options, which are essentially contracts that give you the right to buy or sell a stock at a certain price by a certain date. It’s basically betting on a stock price going up or down. So if you purchase an option, instead of buying a stock, it means that you are buying the option to buy a stock if it hits a certain price, and this can lead to issues because if your bet fails, you’ve lost all that you’ve invested. Whereas, if you bought actual stocks, regardless of the price, you still own that asset.Payment for Order Flow is when brokerages such as Robinhood route the buy and sell orders of retail investors to big market makers such as Citadel and Virtu instead of sending it directly to the stock market. This deal helps brokerages make hundreds of millions of dollars every yearRetail investors are individual, non-professional investors who are buying assets with their own money.Securities: any tradable financial asset - stock share (equities), bonds, investment funds, pensions, etc.The Securities and Exchange Commission – or SEC – oversees securities exchanges, brokers, investment advisors, and mutual funds, to create fair dealings, the disclosure of important market information, and to prevent fraudBildungsroman: Just kidding, but do you remember that from English class? You need to know it. Please google it.For more words and definitions: https://theproblem.link/glossarySubscribe to The Problem with Jon Stewart podcast:https://theproblem.link/ApplePodcastSubscribe to The Problem with Jon Stewart’s YouTube channel: https://theproblem.link/YouTubeFollow The Problem With Jon StewartInstagram: https://theproblem.link/InstaTwitter: https://theproblem.link/TwitterFollow Apple TV:Instagram: https://theproblem.link/AppleTVInstaFacebook: https://theproblem.link/AppleTVFacebookTwitter: https://theproblem.link/AppleTVTwitterGiphy: https://theproblem.link/AppleTVGiphyFollow Apple TV+Instagram: https://theproblem.link/AppleTVPlusInsta Apple TV+ is a streaming service with original stories from the most creative minds in TV and film.
