NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 7, 2019 /U.S. markets surged on Friday as employment data came in well above expectations. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 312,000 jobs were added in December, soaring past the expected increase of 182,000 jobs, according to economists polled by MarketWatch. The Dow Jones Industrial Average hiked 3.29 percent to close at 23,433.16, while the S&P 500 Index jumped 3.43 percent to close at 2,531.94. The Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 4.26 percent to close at 6,738.86.
According to Willie Delwiche, the Director and Investment Strategist of R.W. Baird & Co., the upbeat employment data and wage growth continues to beat expectations, “it makes it very difficult to argue that the Fed should come to a complete halt in hiking interest rates, or that the economy is meaningfully weakening.”
