DATA REACT
Wrightson economists on the greater than expected deceleration in August job gains posit that covid variant contributed to the lower jobs gain -- it was a marginal factor.
  • the slowdown more likely due to the "resumption of in-person school attendance along with the expiration of emergency unemployment benefits will boost labor supply in the months ahead, resulting in larger payroll gains in future months."
  • Wrightson expects the "FOMC to provide much more color on its tapering plans this month, but the outlook will probably still be conditional on further progress."
  • Additionally, "it is very likely that the September employment data on October 8 will reach the 50% reversal test."
