U.S. Jobless Claims Fall

U.S. jobless claims fell by 10,000 to 302,000 in the week ended March 25, the Labor Department said March 30.

The decline from the prior week's revised 312,000 marked the lowest level since February 18.

The four-week moving average of new claims, which smooths out weekly variations, dipped by 1,500 to 310,750 last week.
