The labor market is falling gracefully, which is good news for the Fed who are in desperate need of a sign that inflation will cool. 

According to the U.S. Labor Department’s job report for September 2022, employers added 263,000 jobs and the unemployment rate is 3.7%. There is still a concern of lack of wage growth. This, along with other job market data and inflation could still cause high interest rates, per our pre-job report prediction.
