Oh...and here....the GAO audit of the FED that everyone in the media is too afraid to talk about. Make sure you aren't standing next to a grassy knoll when you open it.
99 weeks ago was November 2009.
They needed some 'good' news somewhere so they created some.
where is the good news in more or less 400000 more unemployed
edit: sorry didn't see your 'good' thought you meant good
It's amazing that we arent's Greece, yet. We need 115k new jobs per month just to maintain 9% unemployment. I can't wait for the post debt ceiling resolution rally to get short. The stars are all lined up for the last hoorah.
See my piece - Selling the Bear Market Debt Ceiling Rally
or maybe we don't need 115k new jobs per month anymore...........
wouldn't that be sumthin............????!!!!!!!!
"This week, these seasonal adjustment distortions could lead to higher jobless claims on a seasonally-adjusted basis. Goldman sees upside risks to the consensus forecast."
The Squid desperately playing its master-fader moves before the end-game enters into condition red. Dimming expectations for a better beat to sell into whatever rally the gullible market can give them.
I put on a significant number of long trades yesterday afternoon looking for the debt ceiling resolution rally. After that, I'm moving more $ into gold. The dollar will lose reserve currency status within 18 months.
Choppy action now on the DJ. The 'jobs' report isn't having the desired impact so far today. Maybe more 'breaking good-news stats releases' are needed... and, one will surely be supplied.
PUP = Pump Up Paper ... IOWs, todays job report equals a paper pump ... but we all knew that already...
Even with the US on the brink of default, this has to be good for a +200 day today.
Kool-Aid for sale....get your cool thirst quenching Kool-Aid here..
For sale? It used to be free.
I guess we all have to sacrifice now.......how much do the peas cost now?
wonder what the big O's favorite flavor is...red or purple?
This should keep the downtrend going. Lower jobless claims means no QE... No sugar.
With more working, that should translate to a fewer stupid postings.
more as the new&saved@TM workers now get company paid internet access............
always the peas the damn peas............
it's insanity...the mkt CHEERS a 398k claims print almost 2 yrs into a "recovery". Mr. market, please take a step back and realize what that number means regardles of what it is vs. expectation. It's still a horror show of a number.
It's like being on the deck of the listing Titanic and getting excited to hear the gash in the side was only 200 ft long and not 210 ft as first estiamted. Sorry Leanardo, it still ends the same way if it's 200 ft or 210 ft, you still drown.
some lived only the useless and weak of will or body died.
We call them anchors.
blub blub bbbbbbitchezz
Nothing to see here. Everybody back to their delinquent mortgages and Visa cards.
It's a LIE!
Silver under $40/oz, I hope some people bought physical with the dip.
The foodstamp number is the most important number for me....they don´t drop off.....
.........and how are those numbers going again?
44,647,861 people as of eom april 11 (roughly 15% of every man, woman and child in the ussa)
hmmm...always ex the last 2-3 months...nothing like a "real time" print...
This under 400K number won't last long.
With the FAA GOP impossed impasse, $2.5 billion worth of construction projects at airports across the country are now offline. One can now look forward to as many as 70,000 people hitting the ranks of unemployment lines in the next couple of weeks.
The initial count according to an analysis commissioned from George Washington University, 24,000 construction workers and 11,000 service and supply workers are now unemployed because of the partial shutdown. In addition to 4000 furloughed FAA workers.
And this is just the first wave.
Job creating GOP go forth and continue with your truth telling!
In my opinion, that's $2.5B that should be cut. Airport expansions are like the street in my neighborhood they've been working on for 8 months, an enormous make-work project. The usual explanation is the expectation of a ever-increasing amount of air travel. But with oil above $100 and the ongoing demolition of the middle class I see air travel stagnant at best. Maybe they can furlough some of the TSA workers too.
S&P500 monthly chart originally posted January 2011 - shows a series of broadening patterns, aka megaphone wedges.
The three broadening formations reveal an unstable market where buyers and sellers battle for control.
The first two megaphones make clear the eventual victors.
Prepare for the next Black Swan which will be ‘unexpected and could never have been predicted’.
WOW thats a low number!!
Team Boehner planted the claims number to make it seem as if the market is on their side.
As usual.....it's a negative number.
BUT.....we've created or saved like a trillion jobs.
agree, how do you count "saved" jobs. I was going to fire you but decided not to.
the percentage of people that get laidoff will progressively get smaller as the work force starts to get smaller.
Lizzy36 and slaughterer - I am sorry to have to post this but anybody that is still buying the Dem/Repub, good team/bad team paradigm is truly clueless. It is believing it that is almost as damaging as what they do in D.C. Let me help:
THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE. THE FAULT IS WITH BOTH PARTIES.
The left vs right screed has now been used for decades. It has been perfected (or near so). The longer you and countless others believe in this charade the worse everything will get. I posted the following last year and will post it again. Please figure it out.
"Current politics is best represented by a two headed dragon. Politicians pay lip service to opposing ideologies but both the Republican and Democratic parties are part of the same big government dragon body. The body is moving in one direction; bigger and more powerful government. More control over the electorate. Having the two parties serves a greater purpose though....it divides the populace (sheeple?) into two camps that are always at each others throat. I think this tactic is called divide and conquer. Until we wake up and get away from the 'Repubs this....' or 'Dems that....' blame game then we will be slowly boiled...just like the frog in the frying pan...all while the dragon stands by watching and laughing."
WAKE UP EVERYONE!
I agree with you.
Both parties are the same side of the coin. Each is beholden to the same puppet master.
I just enjoy taking the rhetoric of either side and exposing it for the bull shit that it is.
Each side using a noun and a verb and "jobs" in every second sentence makes ones head explode. Like a solid energy policy, neither has a jobs plan. NEITHER.
Larry Summers leaving the adminstration and then having the arrogance to make comments about the need for a jobs program makes me want to stab him in the eye with a fork.
I knew there was a reason you've been running that 'Advice 5c' booth for years now.
Which is funny because the federal government is already an enormous jobs program. Who can explain to me why we have a Department of Education for example? Or the TSA?
And MSM has this 'great' jobs data incorporated in their headlines everywhere...
"3 Month Low Jobless Claims" ...and... "US Stock Market Futures Climb on Jobless Claims Data"
Nothing subtle about the azz hats!
Didn't last long - Mr. Market's already heading south if not underwater.
The ramp-up half-life of free sugar injections from the Ministry of Truth is going to be negative soon.
When everything you do is based on lies and delusions, you can't help but to expect the outcome to be bad.
We're finished as a country, the best we can hope for is that it dies quietly in its sleep, like the USSR.
From behind enemy lines in Hoosierhickistan, Esso
My hope is that at the eleventh hour, when the politicians see their careers slipping away, they will turn on their bankster backers, and reinvent themselves as patriotic Americans...claiming that they have thrown off the yoke of campaign contributions...
Of course this is wishful thinking... and my hope hasn't stopped me from stacking...
Cool, a "3" handle on initial claims.
Can we now stop the Fed.Gov from continuing to spend in excess of 10% of GDP in deficit now?
Nah, didn't think so.
Could someone please press the freaking RESET button already?
Great!!! thanks for sharing this information to us! sesli siteler sesli sohbet
