The five biggest U.S. private-equity firms have raised almost $350 billion of 'dry powder' from pension funds, foreign governments and other institutional investors that must now be spent on everything from corporate acquisitions to business loans and real estate. The problem is, the assets have gotten too expensive.
The U.S. unemployment rate is at 3.6%, its lowest since December 1969, but a scarcity of workers hasn't translated to a surge in consumer prices. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell says rapid advances in technology might be one factor.
As competition heats up in the exchange-traded funds industry, TD Ameritrade nearly doubles the roster of ETFs eligible for commission-free purchases.
The social media giant's effort would likely represent the most mainstream application yet of cryptocurrency.
The Labor Department says U.S. employers added 263,000 jobs in April, well above economists' average estimates of 181,000. In a milestone, the U.S. unemployment rate fell to 3.6%, its lowest since December 1969.
A report due Friday from the Labor Department is expected to show that U.S. employers added 181,000 jobs in April, though some economists say the growth may have been even stronger. The cost is annual federal budget deficits estimated at more than $1 trillion.
The Federal Reserve, led by Chair Jerome Powell, voted Wednesday after a two-day meeting in Washington to hold official U.S. interest rates steady in their current range of 2.25% to 2.5%.
Automatic Data Processing, the payrolls servicing company, says U.S. jobs increased by 275,000 in April, the most in nine months. That's up from about 129,000 in March, and economists had projected a March reading of 176,000.
The Federal Reserve, led by Chair Jerome Powell, is unlikely to make any changes to U.S. interest rates or broader monetary policy at its meeting Wednesday and probably won't even hint at future changes. With growth on a solid footing, unemployment close to a half-century low, inflation practically nonexistent and President Donald Trump carping at Powell's every move, there's no rational motive for the central bank to intervene.
A monthly survey from the Conference Board shows that consumer confidence rebounded faster than expected in April amid signs that the economy is reheating.
