    Head of Macro Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Charting US initial jobless claims:

    First-time applications for jobless benefits rose to 282,000 last week (270,000 expected) from 275,000 a week early, according to the Labor Department. It is the 12th straight week with claims below 300,000. Jobless claims continue to paint a picture of an improving labour market and the unemployment rate could cross below 5% this year (5.4% currently).

    The May US employment report will be released on June 5 with consensus expecting a gain of 218,000 in nonfarm payrolls at the moment.

    Hansen: Why I'm not calling it an oil rally, yet

    Ole Hansen
    Ole Hansen, Saxo Bank's Head of Commodity Strategy, was shocked by the meteoric decline in oil over the past year, as were most analysts. Prices have since stabilised around USD 60 from the January 2015 low of USD 44.80. Ole isn't convinced that the recent rebound constitutes a rally as three risk factors remain: ISS militants in the Middle East, global oversupplies, and inflated bullish demand expectations.

    Chairman, Saxo Capital Markets UK Limited / Saxo Bank
    United Kingdom
    The first revision of Q1 2015 UK GDP data was a slight disappointment, in that the reading was unchanged from the first, advance, release at +0.3% qoq, below expectations, which were for +0.4%.

    Looking at the details, although gross capital formation came in at a healthy +1.5%, consumption growth, at 0.5% qoq was the most important shortfall, given expectations for +0.7% and the fact that consumption accounts for 70% of the UK economy. Maybe this is yet another vestige of the effect that election uncertainty had upon ‘animal spirits’ in the economy.
