Here comes JOLTS ...

The May report on job openings and labour turnover is set for release at 10:00 am ET.

The report, also known as the JOLTS report (Job Openings and Labour Turnover Survey), is expected to show that in May there were 5.3 million job openings.

In April, there were 5.376 million job openings, the most since the series was started in 2001.

In May, the initial read on nonfarm payrolls showed that the US economy added 280,000 jobs, though this figure was revised lower in last Thursday’s June jobs report to show the economy added 254,000 jobs.

We’ll be back with the live numbers when they drop.
