Tempered optimism follows the slowest month of job growth since October and a drop in weekly earnings that may restrain household purchases that account for about 70 percent of the economy. Another report showed consumer prices advanced at a slower pace in March, giving Federal Reserve policy makers room to maintain low borrowing costs.
