Tomorrow has two economic reports scheduled for release, one of which is considered to be extremely important and highly influential to the financial and mortgage markets. That would be November’s Employment report at 8:30 AM ET, which is comprised of many employment statistics and readings of the employment sector. The most watched are the unemployment rate, the number of news jobs added or lost during the month and average hourly earnings. Current forecasts call for the unemployment rate to have been 6.8% (down from October’s 6.9%), while 550,000 new jobs were added back to the economy. The income reading is forecasted to show an increase of 0.1%. The ideal scenario for mortgage shoppers would be a higher unemployment rate, a much smaller increase in payrolls (or a decline) and no change in the earnings reading. However, stronger than expected readings may fuel bond selling that would lead to higher mortgage rates.
