Investors enthusiastically met with a strong report on the US labor market, published last Friday, as well as information about the next reduction in the deficit of the US foreign trade balance.
According to the data presented, the deficit of trade in goods and services in the US in May fell by 6.6% compared to the previous month, amounting to $ 43.05 billion. Thus, the deficit of foreign trade in May was the lowest since October 2016.
At the same time, although unemployment rose to 4.0% from 3.8% in May, the number of jobs outside the country's agriculture increased by 213 000 in June (the forecast was +200 000). Also upward, NFP data for the previous two months were revised.
The number of jobs outside of US agriculture increases for 93 consecutive months, which is the longest such period in the history of such statistics, and speaks of a strong labor market.
Steady hiring of workers and low unemployment indicate that the US labor market remains a strong place in the country's economy since the end of the recession nine years ago. At present, activity in other sectors seems to be accelerating as well. Some economists predict that the country's GDP growth in the second quarter exceeded 4% per annum for the first time since 2014.
The main US stock indexes today continued to rise against the background of strong macroeconomic indicators for the US, published last week. The escalation of the US trade contradictions with other countries, for the time being, seems to be taking a back seat.
