Jobs Friday! US Avg Hourly Earnings In April Increase To 4.4% YoY, Too Bad Core Inflation Is At 5.6% YoY (Jobs Revision Loses -149K Jobs)

The good news? The US economy added 253k jobs in April. The bad news? Last months jobs report of 236k jobs added was revised downwards to 165k jobs added.

US average hourly earnings year-over-year (YoY) rose in April to 4.4%. Too bad core inflation at the last reading also rose to 5.6% YoY.

Yes, Biden and his talking heads will talk about the 253k jobs added, but will ignore (of course) the huge downward revision of March’s jobs added. 236k revised downwards to a mere 165k.

And on the good jobs report, the 10-year Treasury yield jumped by 10.9 basis points.

And the US Treasury 2Y-3M curve has dropped off the end of the earth.
