    Strong report for the Fed Hawks – Bullard will find a reason not to like it. Wages as expected which saw the dollar run. 50 against yen and Euro, 70 against the pound

    Excellent Jobs Numbers just released – and I have only just begun. Many job stifling regulations continue to fall. Movement back to USA!

    ^^^ Thanks for all details on JOB#s …. The GLOOMERS & DOOMERS, metal investors, FAZ/TZA triple leverage shorters, DRYS/DCIX investors, and all others heading for bunkers are experiencing the opposite of today’s rally cry – lol 😉 🙂

    USDCAD got momentum in a climb above yesterday’s high of 1.2618 – best level since July 19. Impressive given the Canadian jobs report was much strong +10.9K headline, unemployment rate fell to 6.3% from 6.5%; that’s the lowest since October 2008.

    Standout is 35.1K full time jobs created with a net loss of 24.3K part time.

    Good point that can get lost in all the NFP hoopla

    Goldman Sachs take on the NFP report:

    – Non farm payrolls reflecting broad-based growth across industries
    -Our Fed probabilities unchanged, with a cumulative probability of 60% for another hike by the December meeting
    – Solid growth in manufacturing jobs
    – Modest rise in construction employment
    – Unchanged mining and logging payrolls
    – Employment growth in private service-providing industries accelerated to a 10-month high
    – Retail employment was soft for the second month (+1k) but nonetheless remained firmer than the outright declines seen in each of the previous four months
    – The breadth of job growth was particularly encouraging
    – Broader U6 rate remained unchanged at 8.6%, as a decline in the share of workers on part-time schedules for economic reasons was partly offset by an increase in the share of marginally attached workers
    -Our Q2 wage tracker – which distills signals from several wage measures – held steady at 2.3%[/li]
