NEW YORK, Jan 30 (Reuters) - The ADP National Employment Report showed a gain of 192,000 private payrolls in January, beating the median analyst expectation of a 165,000 gain.
December figure was revised down from 215,000 to 185,000.
TODD SCHOENBERGER, MANAGING PARTNER AT LANDCOLT CAPITAL IN NEW YORK:
'Not a surprise at all, actually. This is a prelude to the optimistic reading we'll receive on Friday. We're post 'fiscal cliff' drama, so a lot of people who were waiting on the sidelines are hiring now. Wall Street should react well to this.'
