There was a dis­ap­point­ingly small in­crease in June in non-farm pay­rolls (jobs) of only 18 000, well be­low mar­ket ex­pec­ta­tions of an in­crease of 105 000. Of the 85 an­a­lysts sur­veyed by Bloomberg, not one thought the June jobs re­port would show a gain of less than 60 000. There was also a mod­est down­ward re­vi­sion to the pre­vi­ous two months’ data of 44 000 jobs.
