Calculated Risk gir oss svake nyheter (ikke for første gang):
On Friday the BLS (Bureau of Labour Statistics) will release the September Employment Situation Summary at 8:30 AM ET. Bloomberg is showing the consensus is for an increase of 65,000 payroll jobs in September, and for the unemployment rate to increase to 9.2% from 9.1% in August.
Overall the economic data for September was fairly weak, though mostly better than in August. The BLS reported zero jobs added in August, so «better» doesn’t mean much. Of course, the Verizon labor dispute subtracted 45,000 payroll jobs in August, and these jobs will be added back in the September report. So better means more than 45,000.
