Unemployment claims rebound put the stock market in check
DJIA futures currently lower 46 points as U.S unemployment claims unexpectedly increase to 419k vs. 350k expectation. The jump in claims number shocked the market as recovery in the job market might come under threat. However, the increase may be only temporary.
