The latest data for jobless claims showed a gradual decline towards pre-pandemic levels, as many employers  avoid lay-offs, and many works continue to quit their jobs in a tight labour market. The Philadelphia Federal Reserve's index of manufacturing activity for eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and Delaware was at 39. Any reading above zero means that more manufacturers say business conditions are improving rather than worsening. The Conference Board’s Leading Economic index increased 0.9% in October, beating expectations. U.S. stocks oscillated between gains and losses, while the three leading indices were mixed on Thursday with the NASDAQ and the S&P500 up 0.19% and 0.24 % respectively and the Dow Industrial Average down 0.18%.
