JOLTS Job Openings

Job openings in the US slid in May, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said on Tuesday. There were 5.5 million job openings in May, down from 5.79 million job openings in April, according to the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Summary (JOLTS) report.

At a 3.7 percent rate, May’s results marked the fewest job postings since December. The decline in jobs advertised by employers was focused mainly in the private sector, especially in the South and Midwest regions of the U.S. The monthly report from the Labor Department is a closely followed barometer of economic conditions, measuring job postings in different sectors, and the number of hires and layoffs — which were tepid in May.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, buying the pair on dips still appears to be a good strategy in short to medium term.
