A little better.
Jobless claims fell by 27,000 to 365,000 in the week ended April 28, a one-month low, from a revised 392,000 the prior period, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 46 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News called for 379,000 applications.
The four-week moving average, a less-volatile measure than the weekly figures, climbed to 383,500 last week from 382,750.
The number of people continuing to receive jobless benefits fell to 3.28 million in the week ended April 21 from 3.33 million.
