Hopium fix is in, now it's time time to polish that turd...
That myth was busted.
Discovery Channel certainly serves up objective truth;)
Computers don't have 'guts' they just fish around for stops to trigger on whichever headline they feel has the most wrongfoot real traders with guts
Hard slogging for the little bots above 1180. Any little thing will send them running for cover.
What a bunch of weenies. How about the fact that half the numbers of jobs were from the returning Verizon workers and the other half was from the birth/death?
"Better than expected" brigade don't care. It doesn't matter if any number is good or bad in itself, all they care if it's better than expected. And it's too funny how people look at these numbers like they actually mean something. Economists try to estimate a number which in itself is some vague estimate.
Even more interesting is how Verizon strikers returning to work is bullish for the Euro according Mr. Doyle.
If anyone has read the book Fight Club. We can expect all positive news to be FADED on this blog. Yeah its all a crock of shit and the lies continue. The time wasting can kicking continues. The theivery and robbery continues. But is anyone else tired of the manipulation also of this blog?
What? Huh? I'm sorry, I'm too busy jerking off to your avatar to pay attention to words.
You didn't miss much... looks like the ramblings of someone strung out on hopium.
dave went junk-magnet!
tyler is drinking too heavily to care about the MSM-ness of this nanny crap!
tyler & slewie want to hook up VIMOMBI NSHOM, ECONOMIST, w/ peter tchir!
is that your sister? or just a friend?
that's his father after the first phase of his sex change operation!
Well, Dave, I guess its a matter of opinion. Is the news merely positive, immensely positive, barely positive, positive but in a negative sense, or dubiously positive since almost all utterings/data from the pols/.gov cannot be trusted? Actually, all TD did was to present others' opinions. Make of it what you will. You just might be too quick to complain. Alternatively, if you don't like the message, simply ignore the messenger. And if you think the NFP report is positive in whatever way, then that's OK.
Um.. you are on a website called ZERO HEDGE, not ZERO RISK.
Manipulation? You mean manipulation like Tyler and everyone at ZH assumes you're too stupid to see the forest for the trees? Manipulation as in the mass media being a mouthpiece for the government and all the big corporations? Manipulation as in the real estate industry always saying it's a good time to buy with lousy data to prove their point.
Go elsewhere if you're tired of this "manipulation" on ZH, go start your own website called www.igotmanipulatedonZH.com we'll see how popular your viewpoints are.
Damn! I was really looking forward to reading something there! Sarc on.
Ah. All is well. Risk on!

"This is critical, this is the most important data that we have seen this cycle... This is going to get people's attention."
"This confirms that most of the negativity we have seen in the market is derived from the market itself and not the data," he said."
"The market is negative because the market is negative." What insight...
Feedback loop coming in 3... 2... 1...
Expected eCONomist response. Now about those unfunded liabilities, bank CDS's, and government defecits... ... all the same I will be selling into this rip... thanks.
boy those are disgusting comments.......
How many minutes did they have to write this piece. Those are all the comments prepared last night and read off column C titled 'NFP somewhat above expectations'
Does the aggregation of idiots constitute the belief of the existence of a SINGLE brain cell?
It would be fantastic if ZeroHedge wasn't always "perma-bear" and helped its readers pick the up movements (even if only short-term) as well as the down.
Lots of great analysis in here but the spin is always negative - 100% of the time. That is not particlarly helpful - pumping fear I'm sure boosts hits but achieving hits through quality is more admirable than pure fear-pumping.
I expect that you are right that there is a major risk of things falling apart in the next few weeks, and it's probably dumb money and/or fund managers looking to pump their bonuses jumping in right now in hoping for a run into Christmas, but if that run is going to happen then it would be better for ZeroHedge to help its readers profit from that than merely telling everyone how insanely wrong the bulls are as it runs up.
Truth does not equal SPIN
You just don't get it. The point is to see the truth and cut through the crap. The markets are going to do what they are going to do. But at least we get a good analysis of the truth withouth the perma bull gotta sell you some stocks bullshit.
read carefully and you will see articles of insight being posted on likely market moves both up and down.
And for now - the spike faders have it!
You're best served by hitting another site with a positive, but not cheerleading, spin and decide between the two outlooks.
Power of positive thinking.
You obviously haven't been here very long. Besides - you can only fool people in thinking dog poop is a fresh hot dog for a very short period of time..
Go start your own website or play with your friends like HarryWanger if you want to be an economic pollyanna based on limited facts and skewed government numbers.
I want full facts and help appreciating when numbers are skewed just like you, but I also want to be able make money when the market goes up, not only when it goes down. Simple as that. For anyone here to say they don't want that, they're either irrational or just mucking around. If a short squeeze is coming - even if it is only a short squeeze in a secular bear market - I want help knowing that so that I can close my shorts or even buy into it. This site could be so much more useful if it didn't miss out on the up movements.
It looks like the pop from the NFP is done, did you get your trades in for the 20 minute rally?
Nope - but did you set your shorts at the top of the pop? and if so will you risk the weekend on them?
I have a few companies that I'm watching waiting for them to break. They've still been covering. I think shorting the overall market is hard because there's a lot of different companies (obviously) but I don't necessarily think that every company is crap. I wouldn't necessarily think that MCD would fall 50%, yea it could happen but I'd rather concentrate on companies that I think have poor business models or will be very badly affected by a recession than to wait for an entire break of the full market, quality names and all.
Zero Hedge is not here to spoon feed you. Pick up your own spoon and enjoy the rich spread of insight wich is provided here daily free of charge.
This week there have been articles on both the technicaly oversold conditions and the historicaly high short interest. If you can not work out for yourself that equity markets could be ripe for a gigantic squeeze then shame on you.
The Tylers are not your nanny or your mentor, learn to fend for yourself.
I think its depends on your trading time. There are times where you can hop in to a short squeeze and pull 20% in a day or two but you run the risk of the stock collapsing back down at the same pace. There are some good companies out there but their stocks haven't been hit much to try to buy the dip, most of the companies that are causing the huge swings appear to be bad companies, MS ran up what 18% in a day are they really a quality investment that you'd want to buy and turn your back on for more than an hour? I don't quite think so but I could be wrong. Yes Zerohedge is ultra bearish but most of the news out is bearish, even if you're looking to go long the site is helpful because you'll be more likely to get out when things start moving against you than if you only read the recovery is in and recession is over.
Cramer makes lots of buy recommendations. You're wasting your time here ... tune in to Mad Money on CNBS and you'll make your fortune.

Zerohedge is always perma-reality. And unfortunately the reality is total shit with little relief in site.
There are plenty of MSM sites that will polish every turd to placate the public and help bleed their pockets.
Only one way the USA can get out of this problem and that is if there is decent global growth. But it aint coming despite the trillions spent everywhere on the planet. Now we see global GDP contracting with soveriegns with a ton more debt than they began with.
To wit - things are much worse than they were at the begining. That is the reality - Zerohedge would be no better than any other MSM turd polisher if decided to dress up reality in sexy clothes.
I suppose Tyler could start taking particular sides of a debate which he doesn't actually believe in just to satisfy some people that he be "balanced." But my guess is this site would go down the tubes like every other watered down piece of garbage that defies what it actually sees as the truth just to satisfy some thin-skinned person's sensibilities.
If you think Zerohedge goes too far in one direction, compensate for it yourself in your judgments about reality and work it into your overall picture of how things actually are. But don't bring this "Tyler, you shouldn't be a bear all the time even though you actually believe that degree of bearishness is consonant with reality" garbage. It's annoying and unrealistic.
Approach the facts and comment or don't.
The truth may be that everything is on the precipice of falling apart - but if the people out there buying shares are feeling greedy then what good is the truth to you as you sit on the sideline while the market runs up 10% or even suffer as it does so because you're short?
Market sentiment and the dumb money do move markets and it is wrong of this blog to completely ignore it as it does - except when it's negative of course, then this blog is all over it.
I wish I could be positive even when the shit is hitting the fan. This economy is a fucking disaster and millions of people are suffering. Read this:
would be very hard to not sell this sort of news.
to buy back monday morning, of course.
The 45.3 million Americans on Food Stamps don't feel like there is a recovery:
1010SPs IT IS!
Dr. Engali - my point is that it's hypocritical of this blog to pump its hits by being perma bear just as it criticises the financial institutions and media for pumping perma bull-shit to the masses. It's great that ZH outs the manipulation of the naive and hopeful, but its hypocritical that it itself feeds off the hits of the fearful.
It just needs to be more balanced. We'd all make more money if it was.
Ok, the 4 days bull run is done, it is time to be bear again.
This employment number thing doesn't change the fact that Europe is dead.
All opitmistic and full of BS...they sound like realtors.
