The Dow Jones was up slightly, gaining 0.55 per cent this afternoon off the back of today's US jobs report, which showed 304,000 jobs were added last month. However, analysts pointed to the possibility of US government workers obtaining part-time jobs in the private sector, and reported scepticism among traders about the validity of the number. Meanwhile the Dax was just below even as trading closed this afternoon, riding out a rocky day which began with concerning factory statistics across the Eurozone, with Italy's manufacturing PMI falling to its lowest level since 2013.
