05 - The Fed May Not Be Able To Taper Its Stimulus Just Yet
The unemployment rate came in at 5.8% on Friday, which was better than the forecast. However, this print does not take into account the participation rate which fell.

So whilst other central banks have communicated potential normalisation in monetary policy the Fed may not be able to follow.
