Key Quotes

“The October jobs report was broadly positive, as job gains rebounded strongly, the unemployment rate continued to trend lower, and average hourly earnings accelerated, breaking out of the range observed in the past three years.”

“In November, incoming data on labor markets point to a slower pace of job gains than the 271k total gain in October. Both initial and continuing jobless claims data in November’s BLS survey week were higher in comparison with the same period in October, and consumers’ perceptions of the labor market worsened during the month.”

“We forecast that manufacturing payrolls declined by 5k in November, as the employment sub-index in many regional manufacturing surveys suggested that manufacturing hiring remained sluggish. We expect the unemployment rate to remain at 5.0%. Last, we expect another month of solid 0.3% m-o-m growth in average hourly earnings in November.”
