Economic agenda: Thursday, March 10, 2011

By Washington Post editors

At 8:30 a.m. -- The Labor Department releases weekly jobless claims.

At 8:30 a.m. -- The Commerce Department releases trade balance numbers for January. Forecasters are expecting the trade deficit to widen to $41.5 billion, from $40.6 billion, suggesting that imports are rising faster than exports and that trade will be somewhat of a drain on economic activity for the quarter.

At 10 a.m. -- The House Financial Services subcommittee on capital markets holds a hearing on the Securities and Exchange Commission's budget.

At 2 p.m. -- The Treasury Department releases the federal budget for February.
