US Oct Nonfarm Payrolls 128k, Private 131k, Unemployment 3.6%, Earnings 0.2% (0101-PTSY-C01)

Oct's non-farm payroll rise of 128k is clearly healthy outside a 36k decline in manufacturing (and even that would have been positive if it were not for the GM strike). Net upward revisions of 95k shows that trend remains strong, having slowed by less than previously implied. Unemployment corrects a 0.2% decline with a 0.1% increase to 3.6% as expected while average hourly earnings remain subdued, up 0.2%, a little below consensus.
