That seems to be what yesterday's data show.
MarketWatch reports the employment data:
Shaking off fears about weakness in housing and credit, the U.S. economy created 166,000 net jobs in October, the best job growth since May, the Labor Department reported Friday...
The unemployment rate was steady at 4.7% as expected, the government said.
The household survey, however, showed a loss of 250,000 workers, the third decline in the past four months.
And, as usual, watch for the revisions. Note that the revisions on the August data now surpass the magnitude by which the October number exceeded the consensus number.
MarketWatch also reports that factory orders rose 0.2 percent in September.
