Jobless claims dip 20,000 to 331,000, which comes in below the expectation of 335,000 claims.

Looking ahead to Friday's jobs report, Fross says he expects about 180,000 jobs to be added in January. He notes right now jobs has been the outlier in the recovery, but a good print Friday could turn it into a Cinderella.
