20 March 2014 ~ US Claims ~ US Phili Fed

Thursday suffered some considerable selling across the board in a continued reaction to the more Hawkish stance from Yellen the night before.

Of note:
12:30 noon London Time: US Claims released without any surprises, and negligible market impact.

14:00 London Time: US Philadelphia Fed hits 9.0 as against expectation of 3.0
Markets jerk a little but still register as a 1/10 on the Harry Hindsight Impact Meter.
* Several minutes later US equities had risen several points but I question whether this was a direct result of the Phili Fed number. More likely general sentiment.
