Why Traders Care
A rising trend indicates weakness in the labor market, which has a trickle-down effect on consumer spending and economic growth. Although it's generally viewed as a lagging indicator, the number of unemployed people is an important signal of overall economic health because consumer spending is highly correlated with labor-market conditions. Unemployment is also a major consideration for those steering the country's monetary policy.
