US Federal Reserve watching job situation

The US Federal Reserve is closely watching the US employment market with concerns that downward pressure on employment figures could see the Federal Reserve push ahead with plans to move borrowing costs even lower. As we mentioned in one of our earlier articles, there is growing concern amongst investors that the Federal Reserve is even contemplating a further easing of the cost of borrowing to inject more confidence into the US economy.

Whether or not the US Federal Reserve actually goes ahead with this potentially easing of borrowing costs remains to be seen but there must be some concern within the US with regards to the strength of the economic revival. Many people have taken it for granted that the US economy is well on the road to recovery and indeed recent figures would suggest that there is no cause for alarm at the moment. However, there are concerns that other issues around the world could have an impact upon the US economy in the short to medium term which would then have a knock-on effect to other areas of the world.

Despite economies such as China and India come into the fore over the last few years there are no doubts that the US economy is the engine room of the worldwide economy. If this was to stall we would all be in real danger!
