ADP Employment Disappoints For 4th Straight Month

ADP printed that the US economy added 177k jobs in June – missing expectations for the fourth straight month (after significantly under-estimating May’s BLS print). Both Goods (+29k) and Services (+148k) saw gains in June with only Information Service providers seeing a reduction in employment.

The average job gain per month for the last 12 months is now 190k – the highest since Sept 2016.
