Unemployment fell by 0.3%

As predicted several hours ago, the unemployment has decreased by 0.3% to 9.7%.
This was not expected by the market with the average forecast of 10% and the range from 9.9% to 10.2%. The decrease will accelerate in February. The reason behind the drop is the secular decline in the rate of participation in labor force, as decribed in this post.
