Nonfarm payrolls: Let's have your estimates for June!

Attention Traders!
It's that time of the month again, when market participants around the world gather for a just-for-the-fun-of-it guessing games of the monthly US nonfarm payrolls number.
The US employment statistic is, of course, an important monthly data print from which investment and policy decisions are in part derived.

Make your estimate by posting a comment below. The closest estimate wins a TradingFloor.com branded prize.

Once the number is released at 12:30 GMT, it will be updated for you to see on this post. The number will also appear in the financial calendar where historic data is also available.

Join the competition: You can find our Saxo Bank preview here, but what do you think? Let us know in the comment section and join the competition.

The TradingFloor.com community is more bullish on today's NFP than the Bloomberg respondents. Our median estimate is currently 252,000 vs. 215,000 for Bloomberg.
