April’s Employment report was released at 8:30 AM ET this morning, revealing the U.S. unemployment rate stood at 6.1%, up from March’s 6.0% and higher than forecasts of 5.8%. Also, only 266,000 jobs were added back to the economy during the month, falling significantly short of the 950,000 that was expected. Both of these readings show the rebound in the sector that many had predicted is not happening yet. Those numbers are very good news for bonds and mortgage rates. They also should be a heavy burden on stocks, but we have not seen that yet.
