FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Non farm employment is expected to have increased by 130,000 workers in the private sector during the month of January, according to the estimation made by Automatic Data Processing.

This increase surpasses the experts expectations of a 40,000 increment, which would be similar to December's 37,000 increase, revised down from the previously estimated 40,000 rise. The three month average shows an increase of 110,000 new jobs in the October December period.

The services sector was the major contributor to this reading, with a 141,000 increase on the month, partially offset by a loss of 11,000 employments on the goods-producing sector, while employment in the manufacturing sector remained flat on the month.
