Thread: Jobs Report Contest - Jan 2016

  1. #1

    Exclamation Jobs Report Contest - Jan 2016

    On Friday, February 5 we get the January jobs report. Make your predictions on the number of jobs gained / lost in the month (and the unemployment rate)...

    You can't pick a number already taken and each guess must be rounded to 1000's. (ex: +201,000, -14,000, +195,000, +176,000, -5,000, etc. - no 100's)

    There's a travel mug up for grabs for the closest pick.



    If the winner also guesses the unemployment number correctly, they can upgrade to the stainless mug if they'd like (so predict both)!



    We'll take predictions until 8:15 AM ET Friday morning, February 5.


    Thanks, and good luck!

    Briefing.com's consensus estimates are looking for +188,000 and 5.0%.
