12:25 EDTU.S. Jobs Report Outperforms, Despite Payroll Shortfall:
U.S. Jobs Report Outperforms, Despite Payroll Shortfall: The jobs data beat estimates by all metrics but payrolls, which posted a restrained 151k headline gain despite an oddly robust 40k goods sector rise. Annual revisions lowered December payrolls by 105k, but this left a boost for job growth since the 206k downward benchmark bump in March. The workweek rose to a cycle-high 34.6 and hours-worked surged by 0.4%, though with a flat hours-worked figure for goods, alongside a 0.5% wage surge that was partly lifted by minimum wage hikes. Analysts saw big gains of 615k for civilian employment and 502k for the labor force as often happens in January, while the jobless rate plunged to a cycle-low 4.92%.

10:45 EDTJobs report keeps Fed March hike decision in limbo
Jobs report keeps Fed March hike decision in limbo according to the spin from WSJ Fedwatcher Hilsenrath (subscription), leaving the Fed in "watchful waiting mode." He said the Fed had been expecting the pace of payrolls gains to slow down from 279k average in Q4 and Yellen at the December JEC had said even 100k growth would be sufficient to keep absorb new entrants and stabilize unemployment. Moreover, the dip in the jobless rate below 5.0% "reinforces the central theme behind the Fed's December rate increase--slack in the job market is diminishing and will eventually lead to more wage and inflation pressure. A 12-cent increase in average hourly earnings, which lifted wages by 2.5% from a year earlier, underscores that theme." For now the Fed is balancing slower Q4 growth against any more signs of firming inflation or wages, or jobless dip. But, "it is likely to be a last-minute decision either way, keeping investors guessing along the way," he said. In either case, it would appear that volatility will be the winner in the meantime.
10:25 EDTEnergy Action: NYMEX crude crashed to $30.92
Energy Action: NYMEX crude crashed to $30.92 lows from post-jobs report highs of $32.42, before recovering to current $31.55 levels. Oversupply concerns continue to kill any nascent oil rallies, and without an agreement from producers to cut back supply, the market is expected to sell into strength, as it has been for months.

09:15 EDTThe U.S. jobs data beat estimates by all metrics but payrolls
The U.S. jobs data beat estimates by all metrics but payrolls, which posted a restrained 151k headline gain despite an oddly robust 40k goods sector rise that defied weakness in other January reports. Annual revisions lowered the December payroll level by 105k, leaving a net upward revision for job growth since the larger 206k downward revision in the benchmark month of March. The workweek rose to a cycle-high 34.6 and hours-worked surged by 0.4%, though with a flat hours-worked figure for the goods sector, alongside an outsized 0.5% surge for average hourly earnings. Even the household sector beat estimates with gains of 615k for civilian employment and 502k for the labor force, though note that analysts often see big January swings in these measures, while the jobless rate plunged to a cycle-low 4.92% alongside a participation rate rise to 62.7%. The report will boost monthly estimates for January as well as prospects for Q1 GDP, though our estimate will remain at 1.8%.
