March 10 Market Close: GovCon Index Up, While Markets Respond to Strong Jobs Data

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.
