Here’s The ‘Whisper Number’ For The Jobs Report
That number is based on a Bloomberg survey.
However, according to TD Securities’ Millan Mulraine, the market is pricing in a lower number thanks to Wednesday’s bad ADP jobs number. From Mulraine’s note:
Even though the current market consensus is for 140K, the post-ADP price action suggests that the true position in the market (the whisper number) may be for something closer to 125K.
