In its preview for November’s US employment report, up for publishing at 13:30 GMT on Friday, Goldman Sachs anticipates +450K for the headline Nonfarm Payrolls (NFP). The US bank also expects a 0.10% reduction in the Unemployment Rate from 6.9% to 6.8%.

While citing the reasons, their analysts mention that the breadth and severity of the virus resurgence suggests a larger labor market impact. Additional details from the report cited factors behind the easing Unemployment rate as reflecting an increase in household employment and a pause in the labor force participation rebound.
