What Did Gold And JPY Know Seconds Before The Jobs Report?

Tyler Durden's picture

In the 30 seconds before this morning's jobs report was released to the general public, Gold prices dropped and USDJPY jumped from its relative stasis going in. Obviously it is not clear if anyone knew anything but following the knee-jerk reactions, these were rightly positioned moves for where the market is now.

I heard Blythe turned down the CFTC job, she couldn't be Barts hair apparent

the next thing you know, you'll be telling me somebody shorted airline stocks in September

tmosley's picture

You're part right.

In actuality, the cops are working with HER.

Of course, that's not news to anyone who pays even a tiny amount of attention.

Algos can now tell the future?

They CREATE the future, kinda like God or something ... I think I'm on to something... Hmmmm

Doesn't this "resurgence" of the past few days have more to do with Japan boosting QE earlier this week?

We all know this is not what it seems. There is no hanky panky going on. We all KNOW that the best "investors" are those who quite literally can see into the future. They have a crystal ball or something, I'm sure of it. Or more likely with computers and all and given the speed of the algo networks, they have developed technology that is actually faster that light, therefore being able to see into the future. You know, like when Superman flew around the planet faster than light to go back in time...or the Delorean...same thing. There's no corruption here, it all just science....or magic.

The Ivy League Mafia knows everything.  Wall Street is a circle jerk with golden splooge.  Word to your mother.

How is gold only up $2 with such a terrible jobs number. This market makes no sense.

"This market makes no sense."


There is your mistake. You believe we still have markets. There is no market, there is only the fed.

Tsar Pointless's picture

Yep. Just the way they've always dreamed it could be.

See? Dreams really do come true.

If you think $2 up on jobs is bad wait until you see the $100 down on a new $18 trillion debt limit. Just buy all you can and be thankful they will still take fiat for it.

Old Yeller is laughing her ass off at our comments if she reads here (she doesn't but let's humor ourselves).....she's going to continue this charade as long as possible.

how many more days, hours, minutes until next jobs report?

DaveyJones's picture

so true

and markets aren't the only fiction. There's Law, Public Service, Congressional Debate, Bill of RIghts, Three Branches of Government, Foreign Terrorists, Energy Policy, and my favorite, Food Safety.

News doesn't matter....Big money just uses news to cover what they are doing.

BandGap's picture

Big money makes up the news to cover their asses.

And how stupid are the sheep who believe this "news"? Think about it, everything that has gone bad is now blamed on the weather. 

Shame on the Cheeto eating retards watching the world go by.

mayhem_korner's picture



Your post raises an interesting question - one I've been mulling over for years:

Is Cheeto truly the singular of Cheetos?

Tall Tom's picture

What do you want from the Sheep? They are IGNORANT.

It may surprisie you that the Sheep do not watch the news as they have learned long ago not to believe it.

So they watch others lose weight on TeeVee, vicariously living that life, rather than working on losing their own weight. 

If the Sheep are "retards", as you so arrogantly assert, then that means that they CANNOT LEARN.

How can you hold someone accountable for that which they are not capable of doing?

It would be like asking Ten Year Olds to solve a Differential Equation and then casting shame upon them because they cannot do it.

It is IRRATIONAL to expect from others that which they cannot do.

It boils down to the question, "Just what can the Sheep do about it?"


More importantly just what can you do about it?

Act irrationally and blame the Sheep for that which a Criminal Cabal are doing?

Perhaps it is irrational of me to EXPECT you to behave RATIONALLY.


WE shall see by your response.

U dont think the price is manipulatef, do u? Nah. No way that could happen, 

Seeking Beta's picture

I didn't say it wasn't manipulated. All I said is that news doesn't move markets...big money does....

ebworthen's picture

Are the green futures a short squeeze?

The employment number sucked!

But, I'm expecting sanity.

Tall Tom's picture

I am so sorry that your expectations will be disappointed. Good sarcasm.


I am expecting sanity??? LMAO.


That is a good way to wake up.

I'll bite. Somebody pushed enter on a very slow computer, so the HFT's that were quivering so hard because they were about to pee bites and pieces, made 972k liquidity faux trades per millisecond behind the 2 real trades in front and took the rest of the day off. It's Friday. Probably on a plane to Brabados right now.

"They" are greenlighted to cheat on everything else, so why not everything?

Today we breached an important point: the point where they don't even care if the underlying data used for market-moving manipulation is in their favor or not, they do it anyway.


The problem becomes that the story used to justify the action becomes impossible to justify and retail investors become spooked.  Once volume picks up on the sell side, the manipulator(s) stand no chance - regardless of the FED's help.

Ok, in a world where Blythe Fucking Masters works for the CFTC, you think numbers are not released early to cronies?

Perfect timing.  DOW opens. Stocks up, Gold turns red.
