Jobs forcast for the week

This coming Friday commemorates the 66th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, "A day that shall live in infamy," and it also features the week's main economic event - the monthly Jobs Report for November, which might touch off some fireworks of its own.

Last month's report came in at twice the number of job creations than had been expected, so the market will be wary of another surprise in the upcoming Jobs number due on Friday - or a large revision to last month's number. Current estimates are for around 75,000 new jobs created in November - and if the headline number or revisions come in to be well above this number, we could see Bonds and home loan rates worsen. On the other hand, if the Jobs number is worse than expected, or if revisions take some of the heat out of last month's number - Bonds and home loan rates may see some improvement.
