A large revision to the August nonfarm payrolls (to 270k) offset that hurricane-impacted September change of only 134k.


With the U-3 unemployment rate hitting a 48-year low, the 10-year T-Note yield continued its rise to 3.129%. 30-year mortgage rates will follow.


To commerate the lowest unemployment rate in 48 years, I am going to have a ham sandwich for lunch. Instead of Rum Ham, we can call it Trump Ham.
