U.S. Jobs NonFarm Payrolls +271,000; Is the Game Changing?

Economics / Employment Nov 09, 2015 - 06:19 PM GMT

By: Gary_Tanashian

Economics

I can already tell NFTRH 368 is going to be a flowing thing because there is a lot of on-point material to talk about. So the usual standard charts will be minimized in favor of trying to get a good read on what is in process in the markets, in policy and in the economy.

Specifically, given the October Payrolls data, its effect on interest rates and the US dollar we seem to be back to a point similar to where we were 1 year ago when we used a strong USD (and corresponding weak Yen and Euro) to plot bullish trade possibilities in Japan and Europe, and a bearish environment for US exporters.


But first, with the help of the highly recommended Floatingpath.com let’s continue to break down the particulars of the Payrolls report (we reviewed monthly ‘jobs’ growth by industry in a post at nftrh.com): Inside Jobs.

Here is another view ‘by industry’, which shows the trends that have been in place post-2009. It is a ‘services’ economy and a strong currency buys a lot of services.

payrolls by industry

Here is the general view of Payrolls. While the +271k number was notable, the trend is sideways and biased down for 2015. Markets and economies are all about trends. All the October Payrolls did was to revert to the trend (and put a hell of a lot of hype into the markets). The bump however, has knee jerked a lot of analysts to begin projecting accelerating growth. Let’s pump the breaks on that.

Here is a view of said analysts’ surprise vs. expectations. Again, when breaking it down to a graphical view, it does not seem so important does it? The media need to write things and analysts are paid to project things. But the upshot is that October Payrolls sprung back from a couple bad months. Period.

payrolls vs. expectations

So to answer the segment’s title, no the game is not changing. With a bounce in Payrolls the economy-bearish view has been pushed back a bit and the economy-bullish view got a bump. But the existing trends are…

  • Sideways employment growth…
  • Deceleration in manufacturing (ISM) and manufacturing employment…
  • Continued strong Education and Health services, Professional services and Leisure and Hospitality services

Now that we have played it straight with a conventional look at the October payrolls, let’s add in a little context, again with the aid of FloatingPath, and while doing so let’s also consider that with the Fed expected to raise interest rates, yields are rising across the spectrum.  A credit-fueled economy needs what… Beuller?  Cheaply accessible and expanding credit.  Rising interest rates do what?  Anyone?  They restrict access to cheap and expanding credit.  Is this sustainable?

A Consumer-Driven Services Economy Hopped Up on Credit

consumer credit

consumer credit outstanding

consumer credit outstanding

federal government share of credit

This last item is something we have discussed repeatedly on this inflationary cycle.  Whereas the 2003 to 2007 cycle was a commercial credit bubble, the current cycle is a bubble in government credit.  The Fed is backed into a stance of having to raise interest rates to keep its credibility.  Think about that.
