Stocks ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ended lower today as investors viewed weaker than expected jobs data.  The report topped off a week of disappointing economic data on manufacturing, private sector hiring and services activity.  In addition, the on-going tension with North Korea weighed heavily on investors’ minds.

Total payroll jobs rose a dismal 88,000 after gaining 268,000 in February. The unemployment rate inched down to 7.6% in March from 7.7% the prior month.  The decline in the unemployment rate was due to a drop in the labor force.

The U.S. trade balance improved to $43.0 billion in February from $44.5 billion in January.  The narrowing in the trade gap was due to the petroleum deficit which posted at $21.2 billion versus $24.3 billion in January.

Have a good weekend!          ...
