Stocks and greenback suffer amid hurricane jobs data

Jobs data shows 33,000 jobs lost from hurricanes

 

The renewal of tensions on the Korean peninsula has caused US stocks to lose some ground. Also a weight on stocks was the data of 33,000 jobs lost in September.

 

Here’s the most important among shares:

S&P 500 retreated 0.1% to 2,549.33 at 4 PM in New York.

Nasdaq 100 added 0.1%.

Dow Jones lost 2 points to 22,773.67, first decline in eight days.

Stoxx Europe 600 slumped 0.4%.

MSCI Emerging Markets was little changed.

 

A pretty bullish day for currencies:

The dollar stood its ground after hitting the highest in more than 11 weeks.

The euro made up for losses by rising 0.2% to $1.1728.

The yen advanced 0.2% at 112.65 a dollar, erasing a decline of 0.6%.

 

Rather gloomy day for oil, the yellow metal a bit up:

WTI crude dropped 3% to settle at $49.29 a barrel.

Gold rose 0.5% to $1,274.50 an ounce, after falling as much as 0.6%.
