Bloomberg (11/14/13) Victoria Stilwell
More Americans than forecast filed for unemployment benefits last week. Jobless claims in the week ended Nov. 9 declined 2,000 to 339,000 from a revised 341,000, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg had forecasted a drop to 330,000. Numbers from five states were estimates due to the Veterans Day holiday-shortened week. The less-volatile four-week moving average of claims decreased to 344,000 last week from 349,750 the week before.
