Even though the number was better than last month’s 360k, the markets were pricing in a better figure than the released result of 298k, therefore the indices dropped.

In addition, the FOMC minutes showed that the Fed now sees further signs of stability, mentioning that the overall spending of the economy is starting to steady out. Furthermore the minutes showed that the Fed is becoming more confident about economic growth and stated that the U.S economy should see positive growth in 2010. Despite the positive words from the statement, investors looked past the comments and focused on the last couple of days of trading. The September affect has so far lived up to its reputation sending the indices lower for the first week of the month.
