The Congressional Budget Office on Wednesday raised its estimate of the federal government's budget deficit for the 2019 fiscal year to $960 from $896 billion. That's about in line with the Trump administration's own forecast of $1 trillion for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. The estimates are up from a shortfall last year of $779 billion.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- The U.S. economy had 501,000 fewer jobs in March 2019 than previously reported, government revisions show, suggesting that hiring was not as strong in the past year as it seemed. Hiring was weaker in retail, restaurants and hotels. The annual revision is much larger than is typically the case. The preliminary revision in 2018, for example, was just 43,000. Every year the Bureau of Labor Statistics updates its figures based on unemployment data that nearly all employers are required to file with the states. The current revision is one of the largest ever. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move. Visit for more information on this news.
