Wages are up 0.2% monthly and 3% yearly, within expectations.

The US Dollar is on the rise. EUR/USD is falling from around 1.1150 to 1.1130. GBP/USD is down to below 1.2950, and USD/JPY is up to 108.20.

October's Non-Farm Payrolls report was expected to show an increase of only 89,000 jobs after 136,000 in September. The main reason for the downward drag stems from the long strike at General Motors. Nevertheless, the broader picture is of a gradual slowdown in net increases.
