by Calculated Risk on 9/19/2018 06:54:00 PM

Note: The weekly claims report will be for the week ending September 15th. Hurricane Florence impacted the Carolinas starting around September 13th, so there might be some increase in claims due to the hurricane, but it is more likely a bump in claims will happen this week (to be reported next week).

• At 8:30 AM: The initial weekly unemployment claims report will be released.  The consensus is for 210 thousand initial claims, up from 204 thousand the previous week.

• At 8:30 AM: the Philly Fed manufacturing survey for September. The consensus is for a reading of 19.2, up from 11.9.

• At 10:00 AM: Existing Home Sales for August from the National Association of Realtors (NAR). The consensus is for 5.36 million SAAR, up from 5.34 million in July.

• At 12:00 PM: Q2 Flow of Funds Accounts of the United States from the Federal Reserve.
