All eyes on US employment report

  • November US employment report. We look for nonfarm payrolls to rise by 175k in today’s release, with 165k of these gains to come from the private sector. Initial and continuing jobless claims have continued to trend lower, bolstering our confidence that labour demand remains solid. Further, given the large decline in survey week claims, we see some upside risk to our employment growth forecast.

  • Italy's referendum on constitutional reforms will be held on Sunday. We believe that the vote has potentially more far-reaching, non-linear ramifications than simply approving/rejecting the bill may suggest. We will be discussing the political and market impact of the referendum result in a conference call Monday 13:00 GMT.
