TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks finished lower as investors on either side of the Atlantic digested what at first glance appeared to be a disappointing US non-farm payrolls report for the month of December.

America’s economy generated 145,000 new hires in December (consensus: 160,000) and average hourly earnings rose at a just a 0.1% month-on-month clip (consensus: 0.3%), with wage growth for non-supervisory and production workers at its weakest since October 2017.

Ian Shepherdson at Pantheon Macroeconomics said the trend for job gains was “much better” than what the surveys had been suggesting in late summer and fall and was likely to extend further, with wages likely set to revive over the next few months.
