Nonfarm payrolls grew at 531,000 in October, more than the consensus estimate of 450,000. The unemployment rate has fallen to 4.6%, down from 4.8% the previous month.
Jim Awad, senior managing director of Clearstead Advisors said that a recovering labor market is a sign of higher wages to come, which in turn will cause higher inflation and higher interest rates.
