Unbelievably Strong Jobs Data Likely To Spark Rally On Wall Street

(RTTNews) - The major U.S. index futures are currently pointing to a sharply higher opening on Friday following the release of much better than expected jobs data.

The upward momentum on Wall Street comes following the release of a report from the Labor Department claiming employment in the U.S. unexpectedly showed a substantial rebound in the month of May.

The Labor Department said non-farm payroll employment jumped by 2.51 million jobs in May after plummeting by a revised 20.69 million jobs in April.

The rebound in employment came as a shock to economists, who had expected the loss of another 8.0 million jobs following the nosedive of 20.5 million jobs originally reported for the previous month.

With the unexpected rebound in employment, the Labor Department said the unemployment rate dropped to 13.3 percent in May from 14.7 percent in April. Economists had expected the unemployment rate to surge up to 19.8 percent.
