Figures from the Labor Department showed jobless claims increased to 480,000 last week from 473,000 a week earlier, indicating the labor market will take time to strengthen.

Some other indicators looking up a bit.

    Couldn’t:   Just because bankers are paying themselves bonuses, doesn’t mean anything is looking up. They just figured out how to manipulate the numbers differently.
