This is a political stunt, to try to make it sound good for this cabinet in office at the moment..

I want to see where these jobs are. Ya know some transparency, anyone have a website for this so we can read it?

But how else could the MSM create their articles? -

U.S. headed for a weak rally

Rockpuck hit the bull again. The 10,000 mark will be defended like the Last Alamo. Watch those volumes for signs of intervention...

DOW will finish above 10,000 .. letting it close below yesterday was not intended.. as someone on here said a few days ago, I believe DOW 10k is being used as a barrier.. people see DOW 10k+ and think the economy is good.. or getting better.. anything below = second crash coming and people run to remove money they have added to their funds.

Not likely. Futures are already hovering near 10,000. I expect will see it dip down to low 9900s and then recover a bit, or maybe it will all crash to hell. Commodites are already gettin killed.

Maybe the new electrics mentioned in Urbansurvival can level it out.

If what I read is true then the balance of power will shift and the BRIC alliance (Brazil, Russia, India, China) begins to make a whole lot more sense!!!

Holy power shift batman if Rare Earth becomes the new oil.

Also rumor of BIG FIRM meltdown taking root....

Dollar is up 32 points at 80.395. with that all earth made products are trading lower. Friday Night is always good for the bank failures to be identified, so watch for that, because this weeks dip in all physicals could imply a major to fail.

Sorry I updated my thread I found out where the job numbers were gaining. check this out its temporary work, and retail. Yeah retail from the last holiday season.

I do not think the report is to positive. As far as the growth in so called job creation and the lower unemployment rate. Take a look at the report, now the MSM, is not saying where those gains were. This is just my opinion... If you read the report, still allot of losses in manufacting warehouse construction etc. etc.

Now you're scaring us. Admittedly it could go either way. But not without a fight. And, some suspect, some planning...

PS London seems to have got wind of some positives. Looks like they don't see anything less than 10,000 in NY either: 5097.42 down 41.89 (-0.82%)

Very interesting. I'll take time to read the whole article.

How about a home run in response to your curve ball? Check this out:

Cold Fusion may well be Real, but Suppressed

(That thread should've been flagged to death. Instead it got 3 flags & no responses.)

Un(Employment) Friday 2/5

The data continues with the January Employment Situation Report.

The top-line was a loss of 20,000 jobs but the unemployment rate "as reported" fell from 10.0 to 9.7%.

This was good for an almost-immediate 10 point ramp in the futures, exactly as I had talked about last night in the video - the potential for anything "in line" to provoke a snapback was quite real, and it became realized - at least until people actually read inside the report, that is!

But one must dig into the report and try to determine if we're seeing real improvement, or whether we've got statistical adjustments, remembering that January is a difficult month under the best of times because of benchmark and annual revisions.

And here we find some problems.

First, let's start with the good news:

My love you are a genius,

The predictions today are, that the markets will do worst than yesterday, but the trend so far had shown that the markets actually like bad news.

We all know, Rockpuck included, that job performance has been underestimated and played out like is not a big deal as long as the markets keep performing (in some way)And the governemnt keep telling that they are "creating jobs" with the stimulus (whatever stimulus is in the works at the moment).

Job loses are been played out, counted only as the so call "Recession" started, but what they don't add and never will is the lost of jobs before the recession, those jobs are gone and none has been replaced.

And is not way to replace them either.

Doing this help keep the unemployment rates a littler bit lower than they actually are, like saying we lost 7 million jobs but is actually 8 million, no much but enough to keep rates lower.

Hi, sweet thing, long time no see, you are so right nothing but bad news to bring the old crowd back.

But in my case I have to stay out of bad news, (no good for my health right now) so I will just pop in and out.

Or my blood pressure will get out of control

Take a look at the charts

9300 DOW is my "last stand"

Anything between here and there are buying opp's IMO and even EUR/USD is getting out of hand oversold, although I think on the monthly timeframe we go to 1.26 on EUR/USD but that could take months

We at some point needed to go touch the 200 ema to keep this rally going as we all already knew so this drop shouldn't really surprise anyone, but it is nice to get more than 2 people in this thread voicing opinions

Concerns about the health of Greece, Portugal and Spain showed no signs of flagging Friday as Portugal decided to increase spending and a strike in Greece dragged on for a second day.

Credit-default swaps on all three hit record levels on Friday
