End of Day Report
Apr 3 2013 | 5:00 PM

Stocks ended lower today as weak growth in U.S. private sector jobs dampened investors’ optimism and is now a source of concern that the economic recovery is losing steam.

The ADP Employment Report showed that private payrolls increased a mere 158,000 in March which is much lower than February’s (revised) number of 237,000. The cause of the slump is the diminishing demand for construction jobs.

The ISM Non-Manufacturing Index fell to 54.4 which is the slowest monthly growth since July 2012.  The report indicates that employment is the main source of the downturn.

Home loan applications fell 4% due to a decline in refinancing.

Have a good Wednesday night!                                            ...
