The Department of State has just released the November 2011 Visa Bulletin. The November Visa Bulletin is the second Visa Bulletin of US Fiscal Year 2012.
As recently has been the case, the EB-3 dates moved up slowly but steadily, averaging a few weeks improvement; India and China EB-2 did move ahead about four months.
The Visa Bulletin contained a discussion about future EB-2 movement:
The November Employment-based Second preference cut-off date for applicants from China and India is the most favorable since August 2007. This advancement is expected to generate significant levels of demand based on new filings for adjustment of status at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services offices. While significant future cut-off date movements are anticipated, they may not be made on a monthly basis. Readers should not expect such movements to be the norm throughout the fiscal year, and an eventual retrogression of the cut-off at some point during the year is a distinct possibility.
