Pretty strong job numbers and more inflation pressure

Nonfarm payrolls increased by 250,000 for October, well ahead of Refinitiv estimates of 190,000.

Average hourly earnings increased by 5 cents an hour for the month and 83 cents year-over-year, representing a 3.1 percent gain, the best pace since 2009.

The prediction - likely rebounded in October, with nonfarm payrolls probably increasing by 193,000 and the unemployment rate holding steady at a 49-year low of 3.7%. Wages are further expected to break through the psychologically important 3% annual growth ceiling that's held firm for nearly a decade.

Inflation coming

Jobs numbers not as good this month, but wage growth still good

September Nonfarm payrolls rose just 134,000, well below estimates of 185,000 and the worst performance since last September, when a labor strike weighed on the numbers.
The closely watched average hourly earnings component showed a 2.8 percent year-over-year increase, in line with Wall Street estimates.

The US economy added 157,000 jobs in July - 33,000 fewer than expected and well below the 248,000 created in June.

Economists had forecast that the number of jobs created would be close to 190,000 for the month.

The unemployment rate fell from 4.0% to 3.9% in July, the US Department of Labor said, near to the 18-year low it reached in May.

Previous job gain estimates for May and June were revised upwardly, to 268,000 and 248,000 respectively.

The job figures follow data last week that showed the US economy grew at an annualised rate of 4.1% in the second quarter of the year.

Steady growth
The Department of Labor figures also showed average hourly earnings increased by 0.3% in July to $27.05, meaning they were up 2.7% from the same month last year.

We too negative, lol

Nonfarm payrolls increased by 223,000 jobs last month, the Labor Department said. Data for March and April was revised to show the economy creating 15,000 more jobs than previously reported. Economists blamed bad weather for the slowdown in job growth over those two months.

Fed banker Bullard hinted at a slowing of rate increases early this week or late last. I bet they come out with weak number to justify a hesitation in rate increases, especially with a trade war now underway

I bet 155,000

Any guess on the US jobs number this morning. 189,000 expected which is not great. I think a little weaker at 175,000

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is unconcerned about the bond market's ability to absorb rising government debt after his department said it borrowed a record amount for the first quarter. "By definition supply and demand will equate," he told Bloomberg TV. Net borrowing totaled $488B, exceeding the old record of $483B in Q1 of 2010, a period when the U.S. was struggling to pull out of the financial crisis.

The US economy added 103,000 jobs in March. Pretty bad number, maybe rate increases already having affect

It was the lowest in six months and sharply below economists’ forecasts of 193,000.

The figure for February was revised up to 326,000 from 313,000.
