LGT Navigator: Weak US labor market report disappoints, but defuses interest rate worries

The US jobs statistics published on Friday disappointed high expectations, but at the same time defused the fears of many stock market players about rising interest rates. While reactions on the stock markets were limited, the US dollar came under pressure across the board. At least the weak labor market report is likely to have contributed to a certain calming of interest rate worries, which have been growing in strength recently.
