Jobless Claims are down by a thousand, which also beats expectations.  Those are two encouraging pieces of information, but what people really want to hear is the thoughts of one woman, who will be speaking at a symposium in the Cowboy State tomorrow about the future of interest rates.  Fed Fund Futures are prognosticating a 21% chance of a rate hike in September and a 41% probability in November.
