  1. this number wasn't bad enough, it needed to be 300k+ and worse on unemployment- instead they are going to be delayed for the next sample period. next month is going to be a shit show could see 350k+ nfp
  2. S2007S


    Many were expecting a 250,000-300,000 job loss, but since it was such a great number -247,000 :)p ) the market is cheering such a fantastic number.
  3. Those numbers are total bullshit. Next month they will be revised to 325,000 at least.
  4. Still trying to connect payroll numbers and market reaction?

    A futile effort.
  5. Maybe they will be revised to 350k or maybe to 150k. BLS NFP numbers have a sampling error of +/- 100k. This goes in both directions.
  6. You have to accept the notion that the number was "leaked" earlier in the week. :cool:
