* Debt, growth uncertainty fuels risk aversion * Gold seen heading higher * Coming up: U.S. non farm payrolls July; 1230 GMT By Harpreet Bhal LONDON, Aug 5(Reuters) - Gold jumped on Friday as investors took refuge from equity and debt markets on mounting concerns about the threat of contagion from the euro zone crisis and as worries about a slowdown in U.S. growth fuelled a pullback in risky assets.

I originally thought the July jobs report would be out later in the day today, but it looks like it will be out in around 30 minutes.

www.marketwatch.com...


WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The U.S. Labor Department will release the monthly employment report for July at 8:30 a.m. Eastern. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch estimate the U.S. added 75,000 last month, with the unemployment rate unchanged at 9.2%.

Bear Market Bubble finally bursts. There really was no reason for the stocks to climb back so fast after the crash in 2009. This was bound to happen, I'm actually surprised this took so long. Stocks kept climbing up when the Economy was still bad or even worse...

More than a worthy cause to point out this shte storm

I think it is amusing (in that sick kind of way) that our Prime Minster, deputy PM and Chancellor are all on holiday at once
I wonder if they have bags of swagger with them???


It reminds me of a time working with the military that we had a major issue that meant we had to contact Whitehall via the emergency phone only to get a recording saying it was lunch and to call back later

Ahh but you see it is always more awe inspiring and news worthy when the headline reads "PM cuts short holiday to hed up emergency economic review panel"

it shows his "commitment" to the cause.

Can you say, exit stage left!

So I guess the rioting will be coming soon.

Right now all the educated and informed people are in panic mode but not rioting yet.

What will happen when the uneducated or uninformed have this financial crisis hit them in the face?

Beer may be affordable this morning. Tomorrow it may cost 10x as much. That will be one factor precipitating an under-middle class riot. I would think this would happen all over the US and not just in one state.

Although I would think DC would see the greatest amount of riots due to the Fed governement being located there.

Less than 5 minutes for the Jobs report.

I guess the job report is considered positive

www.marketwatch.com...


WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The U.S. economy added 117,000 jobs in July and an even larger 154,000 in the private sector while the unemployment rate fell to 9.1% from 9.2%, partly because 193,000 people dropped out of the labor force, according to the latest government data.


193,000 dropped out of the labor force? Does this mean that 117,000 jobs and 154,000 jobs have been created together?

FTSE -2.20% will see how this affects the market.

Employers added more jobs than forecast in July, the jobless rate fell and wages climbed, easing concern the U.S. economy is grinding to a halt. Payrolls rose by 117,000 workers after a 46,000 increase in June that was more than originally estimated, Labor Department data showed today in Washington. The median estimate in a Bloomberg News survey called for a July gain of 85,000. The jobless rate dropped to 9.1 percent as more Americans left the labor force, while average hourly earnings climbed 0.4 percent.


Bloomberg

OK, are these figures fudged.

The unemployment rate went down because 194,000 people left the workforce, i.e. retired.

So the workforce shrinks, so comparatively the number of people without jobs went down becuase some of the unemployed retired!!! Does this make real sense to anyone.

In current times, are people REALLY gonna care about BEER?

Man, I'm so lucky I've never had a drop of the stuff and can be concerned about serious things rather than the trivial.

Anyway, I might be heading to the outback soon, go to my family's farm. Get away from this stuff for a while.
