As for the Unemployment Rate, it jumped as the Federal Reserve wanted, from 3.5% in September to 3.7% in October.

The Federal Reserve would continue to tighten conditions given the October labor market figures. Although Jerome Powell and company revealed that they would slow the pace of interest rate hikes, they would be watching next week’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) for October, along with consumer sentiment and inflation expectations from the University of Michigan (UOM).
