Strong U.S. employment report bolsters interest rate speculation
In this week’s market update:
- Why Friday’s strong U.S. jobs report gives more fuel to speculation that investors will see interest rates begin to rise in September
- How might the broader U.S. economy benefit from the U.S. jobs number
- Why Greece continues to be the word driving uncertainty across the European economy
