“The numbers job this morning played a big role, “summarized Michael James of Wedbush Securities. “Not only were they well above expectations, but allowed to forget the concerns over the figures of the previous month.”
The United States experienced a spectacular rebound in their new jobs June, according to a report released by the labor department, allaying fears about the strength of the US labor market, which had paralyzed the markets following poor figures in May.
“This gave the green light to spend to purchase “, Wall Street has lacked conviction since the end of last week, said Mr James.
While the unemployment rate increased slightly, but c is primarily because a greater number of Americans have given up looking for work.
the report is “clearly a sign that the economy is better than many people had thought” , found Bill Lynch, of Hinsdale Associates. “There is probably no risk of recession this year.”
While the details seemed less engaging, like the fact that the May figures were revised to be even worse than initially announced some observers felt that this would lead especially the Federal Reserve (Fed) not quickly raise rates and thus maintain a consistent support to investors.
on a more specific point of view, “the values related to consumption were particularly shaped “remarked James, seeing both the effect of the employment figures and good results of the Gap clothing store chain.
“This helped revive many values of the sector, which fared poorly since the beginning of the year and especially the last month,” said Mr. James
