NEW YORK, June 9, 2016 /CNW/ - http://www.FinancialBuzz.com : A weak jobs report last week gives good news and high hopes for safe haven investors even with the likelihood of a rate hike next month from the Federal Reserve. The US employment rate slowed down in May and shows that only 38,000 jobs were added last month. This was substantially the smallest gain since September 2010, and might be a sign of an economic slowdown. The US economy has barely grown in the first quarter of 2016. Yet, these reports do not indicate that the U.S is in trouble economically since occasional slowdown is expected, and economic growth is rarely a strictly upward curve.
