- Equity markets initially responded positively to the poorer-than-expected August jobs report, with the headline missing expectations by some distance: +235k vs. Exp. +733k. The theory that bad economic data would delay any tapering of asset purchases was short-lived though, with the data suggesting underlying wage pressures were still present.
- Equity futures eventually settled lower, with the e-mini S&P off just over 5 points into the close. The S&P 500's financials sector led losses, with a bank names failing to benefit from the moderately steepening US sovereign curve.
- Across Europe, indices all closed solidly lower, with the CAC-40 closing off over 1% to be the poorest performing core market. The UK's FTSE-100 was spared from the bulk of the losses, but still dropped 0.3%.
