Nonfarm payrolls rose 178k in November, in line with expectations. But the October gain was revised negatively from 161k to 142k. Unemployment rate fell from 4.9% to 4.6% unexpectedly. Average hourly earnings fell by 0.1% instead of rising by 0.2% as analysts had predicted. The earnings were up 0.4% the month before. (Event A on the chart.)
