I posted what Goldman Sachs were expecting in today's nonfarm payroll report, due from the US at 1230GMT

The Wall Street Journal now with their '5 things' format for the employment report:

  1. The pace of hiring ... averaged 196,000 in Q1 ... 146,000 in Q2 and for Q3 rebounding to 192,000
  2. Watch the unemployment rate and participation rate
  3. A tighter labor market seems to be producing stronger wage growth
  4. The U-6 (measure of unemployment and underemployment) stood at 9.7% for the third consecutive month. Progress would be welcome news.
  5. A potential wild card for Friday's report was Hurricane Matthew
