US job numbers were solid last week.  Non-Farm Payrolls were upbeat  and  wage growth improving to 0.3%, above the estimate of 0.2%. The Fed refrained from raising rates last week, but the policy statement was slightly hawkish, as the Fed gave a thumbs-up to the economy, noting that inflation was moving closer to the Fed inflation target of 2.0%. As expected, the RBA maintained rates at 1.50%.
