US nonfarm payrolls likely to surge by 219K – TDS

FXStreet (Delhi) – Annette Beacher, Chief Asia-Pac Macro Strategist at TD Securities, suggest that the US Nonfarm payrolls are likely to post a growth of +219k in September which is above market consensus of +201k (range +149k to +256k) due to a solid improvement in the Conference Board labour market differential, a rebound in the Chicago PMI employment subcomponent, and an improving trend in initial jobless claims.
