Whoa Lavorgna does not have the highest estimate this month! That is something new.
All is WELL! So we can now cancel all bailouts and clawback all QE...hell theres no problems anywhere, the economy is rockin!
all the kids in lake woebegone were at the 4th sigma from their own mean too
ZHers must do a shot for every +10k over consensus.
I like that .... lookin' fwd to 6 shots --- thinking , hmmmmmmm, Patron, yeah, that should do it!
Shot of whiskey for every 10k below consensus! Looking forward to being drunk before the open!
So now we have it. If the numbers are good, it must be rigged. If you're the administration, there is no way to making progress - bad numbers are bad and good numbers are bad.
Isn't that special.
The good numbers wouldn't be seen as bad if they hadn't later revised them downward for the past 3 odd years.
That's because things ARE bad. Reality and fantasy are not equally sound arguments as you seem to suggest. The question is not whether things are bad, only how much the Bureau of Lies, (Damn Lies, and) Statistics decides to distort that reality.
I have a really important test tomorrow. Can I just do a bong hit?
Sorry, no bong hits in math and science; for the arts and letters only.
just got done reading How the Hippies Saved Physics....plenty of bong hits in math and science for sure.............
But I don't drink alcohol!
maybe this NFP will sh*t the bed and break us out of this 10 handle channel - http://hedge.ly/ttrPUj .. boring market..
yep very boring market. Fell asleep in my chair today and woke up around 1pm to see basically the same crap i saw this morning. Hard to spot good supply and demand levels on M30 and H1. Had to switch to M5 like yourself and basically scalp some trades in Fx.
Hope so I am making a killing on CARV
+200k and I think we're in for another +80 day for the ES huh? I can't wait until we get -200k NFPs in Q1 2012, how will Liesman explain those?
What a completly PERMABULLISH desperation of the Swiss - French Scammers....
MY BET +66 k
Say 225K, as long as they're jacking up numbers........
What about a 4 sigma miss? That would bail me out of some CAT put options I put on at 91+ rather nicely. Ouch.
I've tried and failed many times with the Cat puts, it refuses to go down with any conviction. Now if I could get out of my GS puts...
I did alright with it last time, and I was up Thanksgiving...Then Ben and the rest did their job on me, delaying the credit disaster that was brewing in europe. It's okay, I still think they'll pay off, and I put on some longs elsewhere to offset while we ride.
4 sigma miss? Very bullish!
Fuck it, let's go for broke, and throw away all semblance of sanity:
Apple store and Mcdonalds doesnt count:)
Besides Apple corporate will probably start layoffs after Christmas.
OBAMA will agree to that. Go BIG or go home.
I nice adjustment to the birth-death number should do the trick.....mes thinks.....
Don't forget, "Oops, someone made a typo."
Remember Carrie Fisher and John Belushi in the sewer in The Blues Brother's? You tell the wildest lies just before your life comes to an end. You know it's coming. The year end rally!!!!!!
Rally so hedge funds make their month, but you don't rally so they make their year? They are going to pull out all the stops, and 4 sigma lies are just the start. If anyone is left alive on the short side, look out.
Spin Baby, SPIN!!!
All these estimates come from foreign banks and brokers.
Just what are these people smoking.....whatever it is, I want some!
135k would be bullish!!!!
Corporations need to fire people or their margins get compressed. Negative numbers are bullish, positive numbers are bearish.
Isnt it all about downsizing now, to show better numbers? When half a national chains stores close, thats celebrated as bullish.
The big dump will come on some 'good news', no doubt about that, its a bear market bottom line we're in a down cycle.
+1.0 jobs will be bullish.
Stop the noise, please!
In October, the household data survey showed a gain of 485,000 jobs, but the participation rate actually fell a tenth of a percent.
I think we see a drop in the number of employed in the household data. I think the not in labor force compoenent rockets up another 300,000 or so.
And the unadjusted U-3 should be around 8.6 to 8.7%.
yea but the kicker will be the revision lol
Any number less than "anticipated" by the "experts" is clearly the fault of the freak October "blizzard" a few weeks back. It's always the weather.
<---- No jobs/Negative Job growth
<---- Jobs/Positive Job Growth
Guesses? +/- what people?
OT: Ron Paul plans on releasing a cookbook.. it includes "28 pages of tasty recipes from the Paul family and friends,” according to a description on the campaign website. It only costs $8 and doubles as a campaign contribution.
I'm going for a sub 100k print. Sure the data has been massaged upwards, but how many months have we seen when the economic data looks good, but then the NFP report misses expectations? I dunno but I have a feeling about tomorrow...
i think a 5 sigma bump would be possible...
...if only there weren't so many people out of work!
Going to be a big UP. Just look at how many people must be on the Tilson PR payroll.
Im going with plus 106,000. WHat is the prize for correct guess? A nice ZH T shirt perhaps.
'Problem reaction solution' and the big plunge coming at any minute now, but never today. Or tomorrow.
And for all their BS 'numbers' whatever they come in at, still no one out there will buy into it so circlejerk on, broken markets.
market will sell if it is 200K big, that is a ridicules number, 175 is generous. If we get 200+ large, you'll see the 30yr climb, equities will freak on that.
Between 100K and 110K will be the number/s.
A strong number undoes any pressure to extend or increase the SS payroll tax cut. If that returns to its previous value, it should be about 0.75% off GDP next year.
