What's On: Jobless Claims, Retail Data and a New Way to Trade

Here's what's up on Thursday's Squawk on the Street:

Jobless claims. Where do we stand now? Stocks will be moving on the news. We'll be watching closely, that includes checking up on the financials after a rough day Wednesday. On our watch-list: Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.

--Then we're talking about a new way to trade. It's like a DRIP except this isn't a direct re-investment plan... it is the plan.

--We're also getting retail data. We'll look at stocks like Wal-Mart, Costco, Gap and Macy's.

--We'll also try to do some math and come up with the answer to this question: how much money can you afford to lose? Speaking of questions, where are you putting your money these days: stocks, treasuries, gold or are you keeping it in cash? Share your answer in today's Street Poll.
