Quick Overview

  • Private U.S. payrolls that exclude government jobs increased 67,000, after a revised 107,000 increase in July, Labor Department figures showed today. The unemployment rate edged up to 9.6% last month. The rise in the jobless rate reflected an increase in the labor force as some discouraged workers resumed the hunt for jobs.

  • Informa projected the final U.S. corn yield would be 3.9% below the USDA's most recent estimate.
