Non-Farm Payrolls beat with 196K but wages only 0.1% MoM , USD ticks down
Friday, 5 April 2019 20:16 WIB | ECONOMY |Ekonomi ASNon-Farm Employment

The US economy gained 196K jobs in March, slightly better than expected. February was revised up to 33K from only 20K expected. However, wages are up 0.1% MoM and 3.2% YoY.

The unemployment rate is at 3.8% with a drop in participation down to 63%. Private payrolls are up 182K, better than the ADP number that stood at 129K. The U-6 Underemployment Rate is unchanged at 7.3%. The net revision for the past two months is an increase of 14K.

The US was expected to report an increase of 180K positions in March after a meager increase of only 20K in February. Wages were projected to remain steady with an annual rise of 3.4% once again.

The disappointing data in February came after several outstanding months, and many believe it was a one-off event. However, with growing concerns about the economy and the risk of recession, the number is watched very closely. ADP reported a not-so-great increase of 129K private sector positions in March.
