Huge bar on /ES. Someone is frantically defending the futures. Isn't this huge volume for after hours?
There's huge bars all over the place on all markets. Doesn't make sense unless algos are currently confused due to the 9% number mixed with that massive employment miss.
The real time 5 minute chart on the futures looked strange - started to drop like a rock and immediately huge (programmed?) buying stepped in. Looks like volume on that bar was as high as the brief selloff during trading hours yesterday.
It's all lies, the algos have no reason to understand these numbers, just like us humans don't. They don't make sense, they are completely fabricated numbers. All governments do is lie.
If it doesn't stand up to scrutinity then it's a lie.
They're not numbers Funkyman. They are NUMBers.
When you see them as such, you ignore them unless you want to be NUMBered.
I'm glad this scam's days are NUMBered. Once the BDI slips into triple digits, it's just a matter of time.
After that, while money fall like pretty snowflakes from the sky, it won't buy you much.
Except maybe, a snowflake.
Haters gotta hate!
Funny I've never hear anyone say that the number was high because we had awesome whether last month..
The Federal Reserve is Benocide Bernanke's Frankenstein. His creation terrorizes the world.
Get a job Bitchez!
soften 'em up with the sound cannon and tear gas... then nuke-em with the bernanke put!
"The unemployment rate fell by 0.4 percentage point to 9.0" at this rate we'll have a surplus of jobs next year without any1 actually working
That is funny
If my math is correct, they seasonally-adjusted an additional 2M workers into the ranks of the employed.
You forgot to mention that it was due to weather, except that drop to 9% was becuase of the awesome work of the Bernak!
9% according to the survey... Good Grief.. Looks like they are kicking the rhetoric up a notch..
Pat Robertson said the miss was becuase the people were looking for gay jobs, in gay industries. So god made it snow a lot to pervent the people from getting gay jobs, in gay industries.
am a little dubious /sarc, but will definitely check it out next time I talk with the Almighty
If you don't get the joke, google Pat Robertson , snowstorm.
I'm sure that's relevant, because Pat Robertson is the cause of this country's economic problems
Non - farm payrolls . Well, if I can't find a decent job in the "non-farm" space, then, I guess I'll have to start looking in FARM PAYROLLS !! ........ time to drop out of "their game" & find my own game.
Explains the Gold buy basket move , yesterday afternoon ;-)
Its all the snows fault.....
Astonishing how few jobs you get for 1,400,000,000,000 new debt per year . buahuahua!!!!
Lies, damn lies, and government statistics.
Yep - worst employment participation rate in 26-years and the "headline" number is materially better than the lows of the recession.
The Ministry of Truth at "work".
Wait one second, so we dropped to 9.0% unemployment. That is horrible because unemployment hasn't dropped. It means more people are now out of the system. Check for yourself
can't be, there are only 40,000,000 amerivans on food stamps. it would be funny if it wasnt so depressing.
You're preaching to the choir.
Well I'm glad some people see, the crazyness :-)
bernanke is accomplishing his mandate of lowering unemployment. too bad its only because he's made the situation so impossible, everyone is giving up looking. good job ben, you genocidal, lying sack of shit.
why would they report a more-truth today of all days?
And unemployment down to 9%.....they just drop people off the roles....watch the foodstamp number..its a better number..they do not drop off there...they just announced 500,000 dropped off the roles....lol...so what do those people do...they file for foodstamps....this is a joke...with Bernanke yesterday...and these numbers...we are a joke...
so we drop unemployment to 9% but inflation kicking in. Misery index increasing. We need a new economy misery index that accounts for the throngs on food stamps and u-6.
Didn't you guys see the USA Today article yesterday? Our standards of living are better than ever...because we pay twice as much for housing and health care than we did in 1980, even inflation adjusted...and we have iPhones. And you can get a t-shirt at Walmart for $3.
must be the snow effect instead of wealth effect
NILF skyrockets by more than 2.2 million. Ouch!
NILF? I only care about MILF's ;)
it'll cost you, they need work
any analyst or commentator that does not point this out or worse, tries to ignore it, is the one that needs to be ignored from that point on, period.
Some idiot is on CNBC saying these numbers are meaningless because of January weather. Of course, if jobs had been up 200k the numbers would have been full of meaning.
Well, the only shocking thing in that statement is the admission that you watch CNBC!
I watch and listen to CNBC during breaking news moments. Otherwise it's running in the background on one of my monitors with the sound muted. As a financial planner and broker who manges money, I would be a fool not to be aware of what's going on, regardless of how insane it might be.
Wow you sound like a real big shot trader. Multi monitor setup, maybe a phone bank with direct lines to the trading pits, RAN Squawk (so you can hear what they are saying about you when you decide to move the markets).
Lol, I read that as "broker who mangles money."
[I would be a fool not to be aware of what's going on, regardless of how insane it might be.]---Cognitive Dissonance
I agree, CD.
I keep track of the MSM as well, regardless of their spin. I need to know what's being fed to the public in order to gauge where the general public is at emotionally/mentally. I go else where for truth.
Yeah, if I had a personal money manager, you bet I would want him or her surrounded by banks of monitors, including CNBC in the background.
admitting that you watch CNBC says a lot. :)
Come on now, a sizeable number of the people here watch CNBC at least occassionally. It's easier to deduce the truth if you know the lies and disinformation. Back in the good old days, the CIA read every word of Pravda every day.
Zamboner from Moodies.. LOL..
I like what Santini on the floor said.. about one of those talking heads not being a cool aid drinker.. :)
