On the global counter: US markets end lower on disappointing jobs data & Asian markets trading lower; Seoul Composite down. US markets retraced from early lows, but indices closed well in the red on disappointing jobs data. For the week Wall Street ended down over 2%. Technical support and a retreating dollar helped stocks to bounce back. Economic data that led to the sharp fall early on the non-farm payrolls dropped more than expected in September. Private employers slashed 2 lakh 63 thousand jobs as against expectation of one lakh 75 thousand. The worse than expected jobs number caused the unemployment rate to increase to 9.8% from 9.7%, but that was expected. News of factory orders for August made a surprise 0.8% drop didn't help the early tone either.
