    There were mixed signals on US jobs in July.

    Employers there slowed their pace of hiring but at the same time the jobless rate fell.

    The number of people in work increased by 162,000.

    That was below the forecast by analysts, who were looking for 184,000.

    In addition, the US Labour Department lowered its previous estimates for hiring in May and June.
