Today’s major economic headlines came from November’s Employment report at 8:30 AM ET. It revealed the U.S. unemployment rate slipped from 3.9% in October to 3.7% last month while 199,000 new jobs were added to the economy. Forecasts had unemployment holding at 3.9% and 175,000 new payrolls. Following suit of the other two, the third prominent headline also came in hotter than predicted. Average earnings rose 0.4% for the month when analysts were expecting 0.3%. The year-over-year rise in earnings pegged expectations, but the monthly increase is contributing to this morning’s bond weakness.
