The NFP for December is out on Friday in the US, due at 1330 GMT on December 5

  • The consensus median for the headline is +190K after November's +228K

This preview is via Barclays (bolding mine):

  • Nonfarm payrolls rebounded strongly in October and November following the hurricane-disrupted readings in August and September.
  • Incoming data on labor markets, including initial and continuing claims, point to another month of solid employment growth.
  • We expect nonfarm payrolls to rise by 175k, in line with the year-to-date monthly average, and for private sector payrolls to rise by 170k.
  • We look for the unemployment rate to decline by 0.1pp to 4.0%,
  • for average hourly earnings to rise by 0.3% m/m and 2.5% y/y,
  • and for average weekly hours to hold steady at 34.5.
