Global Stocks: Nikkei at fresh 15-year high and Wall Street moderately lower

That was the lowest reading since February 2014. The number of initial jobless claims in the week ending February 14 in the U.S. fell by 21,000 to 283,000 from 304,000 in the previous week, beating expectations for a rise by 1,000. The U.S. leading economic index climbed by 0.2% in January, after a 0.4% increase in December. December's figure was revised down from a 0.6% gain.

Today data on U.S. Manufacturing PMI and Mortgage Delinquencies will in the focus.

The DOW JONES index lost -0.24% closing at 17,985.77 points. The S&P 500 closed -0.11% with a final quote of 2,097.45 further declining from a record high hit 2 days ago.
