(CercleFinance.com) – After peaking at 7,066 pts this morning, the Paris Stock Exchange ended the session at 6,951 pts, a daily decline of 0.77%. The weekly results are also negative, with the Parisian index falling by 0.3%.
For its part, the Euro-Stoxx50 dropped -1.4% today to 4,083, in the wake of Frankfurt, which fell by -1.7% (the DAX threatened 15,100).
On Wall Street, the very surprising ‘NFP’ (ie the non-farm payroll indicator) pushed up US rates. On Wall Street, the S&P500 is in equilibrium, the Dow Jones yields 0.3% and the Nasdaq gains 0.8%, notably driven by the good momentum of Amazon (+12% to $3,114).
The 10-year T-Bonds climb towards 1.925%, and the ‘5-year’ jumps from 0.700% towards 0.80% (the highest since March 2020).
The highlight of the week was the ‘NFP’: it’s a huge surprise since job creations are up by +467,000 (including +444,000 in the private sector).
This score is at the antithesis of the -301,000 listed by ADP and expectations which ranged from -125,000 to +180,000.
But there is more: December creations are revised more than double, from +199,000 to +510,000.
In November, this went from 249,000 to 647,000: thus +709,000 jobs over 2 months were ‘found’ by adjusting the previous data… and we must add 300,000 jobs which were not forecast in January (see 500,000 for some people).
The average number of creations over the last 3 months comes out at +541,000/month, that’s 3 times more than the 180,000 anticipated when integrating the median forecast for January: such a margin of error is quite simply historic.
In addition, the unemployment rate rose slightly to 4.% against 3.9% and this is totally inconsistent with the upward revisions of the NFP) and the +0.3% increase in the labor force rate, at 62.2% against 61.9.
Hourly earnings increased by +0.7% to $31.63 against +0.5% expected.
