Market Response To Jobs Report: USD (And AAPL) Offered; Bonds, Stocks, Gold Bid

Tyler Durden's picture

Equities have only one direction (so far) since the payrolls report - leaking higher in general up around 3 points. On the other hand, Treasuries are also bid (though considerably more volatile - having chopped in a 4-5bps range since NFP). USD weakness and precious metal strength are a little more clear-cut and AAPL is fading.

"Tuh Fwee Market" speaks truthfully only when I agree with it; otherwise, it is being manipulated.

"Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized [City-Statist] society." ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Civilization = City-Statism

The word civilization comes from the Latin civilis, meaning civil, related to the Latin civis, meaning citizen, and civitas, meaning city or city-state.

Everybody knows it except LoLbertarian idiots who rage against the State while they're in love with City-Statism (civilization.) It's as asinine as protesting against jet engines but loving jet airplanes.

GMadScientist's picture

I know plenty of classical liberals that know plenty about social contract and have read Locke, Hume, etc

Your "civilis" is currently monitoring your communications (what our founding fathers would have referred to as 'papers', in certain weakened amendments to their constitution), engaging in torture and kidnapping, extra-legal assassination (as if implying there is an axiomatic right for the state to take life!), and violating rights to due process daily.

Claiming that these abusers are the saviors with a plan to restore the economy is somehow less asinine?!

Claiming that these abusers are the saviors

Cool straw man there, bro. Only you and your fellow Leftist and Rightist City-Statism (Civilization) adherents are claiming that.

And yeah, the LoLbertarian City-Statists are as evil as any mainstream brute they compete against for human flesh to control.

"He'd like more than anything else to boss me around, and then WHIP me every time I displeased him....Slave-master Rafe would never shell out the cold cash if, after he paid, I could haul him into court on assault and battery charges when he WHIPPED me."

Nowadays, it's pretty much just an authomatised muppet slaughterhouse run by the bankstas.

Anyone dumb enough to sell gold or silver here is dumb enough to think the Fed actually debated QE.

You know all those rounds of ammo being purchased by DHS, et al? Well, perhaps there is more to this story than meets the eye. Looks like some shady goings on here! Looks like the award went to a "shell" corporation set up 5 days before the solicitation of bids.

".........The address provided to DHS and the Secretary of State is 105 S Eastern Avenue. Let’s use the NSA’s golden child, Google, to take a look what’s there:

What you see is the street corner of East Fremont Street and the intersection of North Eastern Avenue and South Eastern Avenue. On the opposite side of the street is an ARCO gas station.

Does anyone see a business capable of providing 200,000 rounds of jacketed hollow point rounds to the Federal Government? There’s not even a MailBoxes Etc to accept mail! 105 S Eastern Avenue looks like the parking lot for a bodega.

The listed principals, Grace Hodge and Larayne Whitehead, are director and president respectively. Nowhere can they be found attached to Evian Group, Inc, which is unusual, as the whole purpose of running a business is to create a steady stream of revenue. They cannot be found on LinkedIn, where people network to get more business, or even in Google as a website. is parked by for a future site, and Bravenet is hosting

Furthermore, no property or telephone records exist for the principals. The people do not seem to exist.

In reviewing the DUNS (Dun and Bradstreet) record, when the telephone number was called, it was not a business line, but a rather unusual phrase was used, “…[P]lease download line 2”.

So the question of the moment is this: Is this a payoff to a mobster or someone of less-than-honest intent? Or is this graft for Harry Reid, the incumbent Senator for Nevada?

what company is that?


ps: Evian, like in the Evian water bottles?

Or spelled backwards 'naive'.

Hey, if you're not on LinkedIn you're a spook. I know I am.

Dr. Engali's picture

You're a spook or you're on LinkedIn?  Or are you a spook on LinkedIn? Which is it?

"I'd tell you, but then..."

Yes, Evian, like in "PSYOP for the Naive to create fear".

We all died on 12 21 2012.  We are just ghosts walking around and we don't know it.  We may never know it. It is like a Stephen King Trilogy where he only writes 2 books of it and then quits.

Market response : random

lolmao500's picture

Well when you consider that the number of employed people went from 143,549,000 to 143,060,000 or a real loss of 489 000 jobs and the number of new people coming in the work force is at 176 000, which is really a total of -665 000 people employed for December, it's pretty good.

you're not supposed to apply math on government data...

I even think it's against the LAW!

HEY as long as the algobots saw the fake number headline, we're OK!

Dr. Engali's picture

He is just now figuring that out? I'm surprised he got out of his ivory tower long enough to come to that conclusion.

hapless's picture

Nah, he figured that out long ago.  But since he is now a former Wells Fargo CEO, his muzzle has been removed.

All I do is add on every dump. Lets see who really has the last laugh. What a farce our markets have become. And Santelli really let the robots have it this morning. Love honesty and truth.

Oh, that is why I am here. 


Stormtower's picture

Anyone catch Santelli's rant today? He exploded on some bitch after quoting a European economist that called conservative Repub's "Lunatics"...........then went on to ask if some other ass on the show ran his own budget like the FED. Priceless.
