Executive Mosaic’s GovCon Index closed up as major markets rebounded on strong February employment results.
The Labor Department’s monthly report showed employers added an above-forecast of 235,000 positions in February, led by construction jobs and employment in the goods-producing industries. Other strong indicators from the February report were a pickup in wage growth and the share of prime-age Americans in the labor force.
WTI crude remains below the $50 mark closing at $48.39 per barrel of the weekly high of $53.62.
