What’s inside this week’s U.S. jobs number?

In this week’s episode:

  • Why the U.S. non-farm payroll number may be better than it appears to be
  • Was the ECB’s message to the new Greek government a shot across its bow?
  • Why China’s central banks wants to lend more money

On this week’s Market Week in Review video webcast, Chief Investment Strategist Erik Ristuben says there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to this week’s U.S. jobs number, adding that the labor market participation rate and wage numbers indicate a strengthening economy.

Mark Soupiset hosts this week’s episode, which examines strong economic indicators in Europe as well as the pre-emptive message the European Central Bank (ECB) sent to Greece this week that it will no longer accept Greek debt as collateral for loans. The episode wraps up with a discussion of what China’s decision to cut its reserve requirement may mean for investors in Asia.
