No Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) Forecast This Week

My apologies, but I did not realize that Friday was the observed market holiday for the fourth of July in 2015 and that the June Non-Farm Payroll report would be released early (today - Thursday morning). As a result, there will be no NFP model post this week. NFP model posts will resume next month.

It is interesting to note that the unusually high NFP data from last month (May) was revised lower. The June NFP job gain of 223,000 was very close to the consensus estimate of 230,000.
