KEY DEVELOPMENTS – INTERNATIONAL
U.S. weekly jobless claims unexpectedly jump to 8-month high: Adding to recent concerns about the outlook for the labor market, the Labor Department released a report on
Thursday showing that first-time claims for unemployment benefits in U.S. unexpectedly showed a notable increase in the week ended April 30th. The report showed that initial jobless
claims rose by 43,000 to 474,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 431,000. With the increase, initial jobless claims rose to their highest level since August of 2010. The increase
surprised economists, who had expected jobless claims to fall to 410,000 from the 429,000 originally reported for the previous week.

ISM non-manufacturing index falls much more than expected in April: Economic activity in the U.S. service sector grew much slower than anticipated in the month of April, the
Institute for Supply Management revealed in a report on Wednesday, with the index of activity in the sector falling to an eight month low. The ISM said its non-manufacturing index fell to
52.8 in April from 57.3 in March, although a reading above 50 indicates continued growth in the service sector. Economists had expected the index to show a much more modest decrease
to a reading of 57.0. With the much steeper than expected drop, the non-manufacturing index fell to its lowest level since a matching reaching in August of 2010.

U.S. factory orders rise 3% in March, exceeding expectations: New orders for U.S. manufactured goods increased by more than expected in the month of March, according to
figures released by the Commerce Department on Tuesday, with the report also showing a notable upward revision to the February data. The report showed that new orders for
manufactured goods increased by 3 percent or $13.5 billion in March, bringing the total level of orders to $462.9 billion. Orders for durable goods rose by slightly less than overall
manufacturing, up 2.9 percent, although excluding transportation they rose by a more modest 1.8 percent.

U.S. consumer credit rises more than expected In March: Consumer credit saw a continued increase in the month of March, according to a report released by the Federal Reserve on
Friday, with credit rising by more than economists had expected. The report showed that consumer credit increased by $6 billion in March following a $7.6 billion increase in February.
Economists had expected credit to increase by about $5 billion.

Jobs growth more than expected, but unemployment rate rises: U.S. economy added 244,000 jobs in April, accelerating the employment growth from the previous month and
significantly beating the amount predicated by economists. Tempering the good news somewhat was the unemployment rate, which edged back up to 9.0 percent. According to figures
released Friday by the Labor Department, the economy created 268,000 new private sector jobs in the month. This was partially offset by a loss of 24,000 government positions. The
244,000 net job additions in April were significantly better than the 185,000 that economists had generally predicted. April marked the biggest month of job additions since February
2006.
