In October of 2009 we had peaked at 10.2%, since then we have lost additional 153,000 jobs. Now the February unemployment is at 9.7%. There has been a rumor around Wall Street that the real unemployment number is around 16.8% (I donât is it a rumor or the fact), and I know at the end of last year they did some adjustments where they wrote off a number of people and thatâs how the number got lower (they still donât have jobs but they are not in the numbers). What pisses me off is that we are being lied to on a constant basis about these economic announcements. (Thatâs why we should ignore the noise and look at charts and price action) What do you guys think?
