Stocks gain, metals slip after payroll number

  • New York (Mar 7)  A check of asset markets following what's currently being interpreted as a strong nonfarm payroll report (175K jobs added vs. 154K expected; UE rate up to 6.7%): Flat ahead of the number, stock index futures are up by 0.5%; gold is down 1.1%, silver down 3.2%, copper  off 2.9%; the dollar is up a bit, but mostly against the loonie after a weak jobs number in Canada.

  • DIA +0.5%, GLD -1%, SLV -2.9%, JJC -3%, UUP +0.15%
