The U.S. economy added 128,000 new jobs in October, comparing with analysts’ estimates for 75,000 job gains last month. The Labor Department upwardly revised its estimates of employment gains in September and August. On the other hand, the ISM’s manufacturing gauge came in at 48.3% in October. Any reading below 50% reflects a contraction in economic activity. In company news, shares of Fitbit Inc. FIT, -0.28% surged after Alphabet Inc GOOG, -0.10% announced it would acquire the wearable fitness products company.

The US labor market did not lose much of its momentum as expected in October with 128,000 new jobs created. Economists had predicted only 89,000. At the same time, the number for September was sharply revised up from 136,000 to 180,000. “These are good numbers that will make the Fed feel good about doing the right thing,” said economist Doug Duncan of mortgage lender Fannie Mae. “If it does not worsen over the next few months, they’ve been put on ice for a while.”
