Better Than Expected Jobs Number Sends Market To Day's... Lows?

Tyler Durden's picture


When summarizing yesterday's first of the month ramp, we said: "Should the NFP disappoint for whatever reason, today's rally will be promptly unwound. On the other hand, as the final major economic datapoint before the election, there is a snowball's chance in hell the NFP beats at anything less than 1 standard deviation [ZH: this was proven this morning when the NFP printed above the highest Wall Street estimate, a 3std dev beat]. The good news, for those who are sick and tired of the constantly fudged metrics, is that after next week, we revert back to normal, and the mysterious economic push higher (a lot of it reflexive: Why are you confident? because stock are higher. Why are stocks higher? because I am confident) in the past 2 months will finally dissipate." Which is why anyone looking for a reason why the futures have proceeded to slide to their day's lows, this may be it: all the good news is now fully priced in. Things to look forward to now: Fiscal Cliff, Debt ceiling debate, further collapse of Greek and potential resumption of Grexit speculation (just look at the EURUSD), Spain bailout (Spanish bonds today are very unhappy), and the prompt unwind of all "better than expected" jobs number following the election, regardless of who wins the Oscar for best presidential performance. Because now there is an alibi for not only weak future numbers, but for historical revisions. It's name is "Sandy" - get used to it: it will be the excuse for every upcoming economic data miss until January.

It may look like the same junk you can buy for pennies at any flea market, but that there is a pile of 27 times net income.  You don't recognize it?

The IPO price valued Restoration Hardware at $887.3 million, or 27 times net income in the 12 months through July, making the stock about 64 percent more expensive than peers, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

When the lock-up ends, after this pre-election consumer CONfidence boom, this thing is going to float like a Led Zeppelin.

Wait a minute. You mean Sanford and Son went public.. For >$880 million?!

EDIT: Looks like you've struck a nerve with some shareholders. Perhaps instead of downvoting you they could consider loaning their shares to you. It won't stop the hemmorhaging, but I guess they should have thought twice before buying..

Our floor lamp, inspired by pharmacy lamps of the early 1900s, features articulated extension arms that glide on precision-jointed hardware.
Or you can get pretty much the same lamp, probably made in the very same factory in China, for $39.19 at Target.

If a government would lie about terrorism, lie about Benghazi, lie about the causes of the recession, lie about the strength of recovery, lie about fast and furious,  lie about the debt, lie about Obamacare, (feel free to continue) then why would we be shocked that they lie about NFP?

How do some rationally conclude that the government is truthful on some topics, and willing to do whatever it takes on others?

You cannot believe anything they say.

I think the "sheeple" are just getting better at math.

171,000 new jobs created in the month of October.

363,000 initial unemployment claims (jobs LOST) in just the last week of October. (1,400,000 for the entire month)

This has been the ratio of jobs created to jobs lost for 4 years, now.

What part of this is "good".

How can the unemployment RATE (7.9%) keep getting lower while unemployment keeps rising???

Possibly "accounting errors"?

Goodbye Yellow-Brick Road will do the opposite sense of what they would hope for us:

When are you gonna come down
When are you going to land
I should have stayed on the farm
I should have listened to my old man
You know you can't hold me forever
I didn't sign up with you
I'm not a present for your friends to open
This boy's too young to be singing the blues
So goodbye yellow brick road
Where the dogs of society howl
You can't plant me in your penthouse
I'm going back to my plough

Back to the howling old owl in the woods
Hunting the horny back toad
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
Beyond the yellow brick road
What do you think you'll do then
I bet that'll shoot down your plane
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
To set you on your feet again
Maybe you'll get a replacement
There's plenty like me to be found
Mongrels, who ain't got a penny
Sniffing for tidbits like you on the ground

I say that'll work... :D

Step 1)  The Fed creates $40B dollars out of thin air

Step 2)  The Fed buys $40B of MBS from the Private Dealers

Step 3)  The PDs buy $40B worth of USTs from the Fed

Step 4)  The Fed fractionally reserves the dollars 10:1

Step 5)  The Fed now has $400B worth to do as they please, likely shorting oil and precious metals so that while they are destroying the purchasing power of the dollar it does not appear so, at least in the short run.

Of course, on a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero....even for the Fed and its immense ponzi scheme of fiat valued instruments.

Question:  I am seeing an Algo here?  I put in an option order to buy 10 contracts and notice others are also bidding my price (bid size 50, todays vol 5).    My order doesn't fill and I cancel & resubmit it but -mistakenly- at a lower bid (not higher).   To my surprise, the other bidders are disappear... a quote shows only my lower bid present (bid size 10, todays vol 5).   Moments later, my bid fills.   I quote again and the original bid pool of 50 and higher bid are back (bid size 50, todays vol 15). 

It is like the "50 bid size" is a false Algo-bidder.  Maybe thats called a market maker... I dunno.   Odd.

Fri, 11/02/2012 - 11:32 | 2941294 Cosimo de Medici
Cosimo de Medici's picture

Yes, you are.  There is a "fair price" for the option based on the underlying/time/rate/vol as determined by the algo's model.  If nobody is bidding that "fair price", then the algo doesn't need to go that high, but rather just be best bid.  If you try to place a bid above theirs, but still at or below "fair price", then the algo reads your order going to the floor, but because their computers are co-located with the exchange, and their program executes faster than the exchange, their order can beat yours to the floor and be first best bid.

If the underlying changes, the "fair price" changes (the arb disappears at last price), so they pull.  You get filled, because your bid exceeds their "fair price".  The underlying changes again, the algo becomes best bid, which---depending on the change in the underlying---may be above where you were filled.

If you sit right at best bid, then pull your order, the algo pulls theirs (faster than you).  If you re-enter, they re-enter, again faster than you.  All day long.

Their speed demands that you must pay above the fair value price (according to their models);  otherwise they beat you even if you entered your order first.  They pay for the privilege of co-locating, and they can afford to hire better algo writers.

Oh, well. Time to roll our eyes again.

On the (very) bright side, media outlets all over the World have started to state the obvious: That an Obama victory, particularly if convincing - which means at least 4 points - is the veritable Rocket Launch for Gold and Silver, because we are going to get Worldwide Coordinated Stimulus out the kazoo for years to come.

It will turn the focus very strongly towards the German Election and make Peer Steinbrueck the Up-and-Comer.

Two days ago lease rates went to 0.000 for all months for silver lease rates and the rates went to negative-0.555 for the gold lease rate for the one year and like Negatve -0.475 for the remaing 1,2,3,and 6 month rates.

These rates give the bullion banks a chance to load up for the knock down and GET PAID for it......

Fuck you's bankers.

Kitco will show the lease rate drop for a day or so and then make them "disappear" and a new improved rate shows up on thier charts.

Or they show the data correctly for the lease rate but intentionally manipulate the graph to not show the big drop in rates.

I catch them at it all the time and call them on it.

I even have the charts for the same day,and each one is way different,one shows a negative rate and by noon it' showed a positve rate.,but the negative text data stayed the same....

Fuck yoy Jon Nurdler.

You decietful fuckTard.

Silly person, if no one was buying the price would be $0.

The only thing falling faster than the price of gold is the sense of humor here.

When the Ninnies overreact, it means THEY'RE getting scared again - pretty much witless, by the look of things.

I'm predicting a 7-point victory for the Obama-ites.

I'm predicting the loss of 15-18 GOP House seats, including some prominent Tea Partiers.

And I'm predicting beats next week for SLW, PAAS, and CDE - all three.

Now Da Boyz can play these things any way they want to.

But they are about to get embarrassed all over the place, IMO.

Soon, they are going to have to compromise with US, instead of the other way around.

And, by the by, if all three of my above predictions come true, I think it's about time ZH started treating me and those who agree with me with a little more respect.

It's not just the overwhelming majority of the World's human population which wants to avoid another 2008 at all costs.

It's also the vast majority of active Market participants and everyone who really cares about preserving a functioning financial services sector, both in the US and worldwide.

"Rogue"- ishness per se needs to go out of style.

So, if you turn out to be completely wrong- and you are, by the way, 180 degress- do we laugh at you even more?

I'm right on all three predictions.

If I am - which I am - will you allow me and those who agree with me to take over ZH from the Little Boy Market Nihilists who now run it?

Good numbers = less chance of the next QE, on which the market is levitating pretty much exclusively.

As mentioned - SPX / CL / HG / GC / EURUSD daily charts continue to break down.

Where has the Limerick King been lately?  Between him and Banzai they make the news bearable.
