Morning Comments - U.S. Jobs Report, Equity Markets, USD

A consensus-topping 255K jobs were added in the month of July as it appears lack of business investment and a challenging profit environment have yet to hinder hiring so far in the second half of 2016.  As today's Economic Morning Comment will show you, financial conditions in the U.S. are increasingly pro-growth and if we see another solid jobs report for the month of August, a September rate hike is certainly not out of the question.  Also being discussed this morning is the recent surge in equity markets, a weak Canadian jobs report, and the USD/CAD relationship should the Fed move forward with a 2016 rate hike.
