Hello everyone, it's jobs day. It's also Friday and that makes me happy!

Okay, yesterday was the ultimate in boredom.  Individual stocks did well if they had company specific news like earnings, but if not...you probably went nowhere fast.

Hello folks, we've made it to Friday and the "jobs" report. 

Yesterday I mentioned the idea that they HAD to keep the S&P over 2190 because the optics of the market falling below the summer highs wouldn't be good.  So, after reaching down to 2187...they came in during the last hour and saved the day. We closed out at 2191.  That's a desperation type move folks. Consider what happened yesterday....

Hello everyone, we've made it to Friday. However it's Jobs Friday and we have to get past that.

Yesterday was a low volume, boring session that basically just existed to keep the market flat ahead of today's jobs. However, like many days lately...as the big averages didn't do much, there was movement inside the averages.

Every Day is Groundhog Day

The Beatles did a song called “A Day in the Life” and I want to snag a couple verses for you…

Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

Isn’t that the way?  We get up and scurry around, getting ready for our day. We’re usually in a rush, as life has a habit of getting in the way. Day after day it goes, we wake, we work, we shuttle the kids, we eat, and we fall in bed ready to do it again the next day.

Good morning all we've made it to April fools day.  Considering we play in the markets, it would be easy to come up with an April fool's joke, in fact we're going  to see one this morning with the jobs report.

While Wall Street and the politicians love to point to the unemployment rate as proof they've done a great job in the "recovery" , they aren't fast to talk about the participation rates, or the complexion of the jobs. People working two part time jobs, instead of one good paying job is NOT wonderful. People working as waitresses and bartenders versus building things to sell around the world isn''t wonderful.

Morning all, we've made it to Friday....Jobs day.

I've never been shy about telling you all my thoughts, opinions and even emotions. It's who I am. And yes, yesterday frustrated the hell out of me. On Wednesday when we had that low volume "flat" wandering around the unchanged line, I had a small hunch they'd fire us up in the afternoon. They did and we took the SPY for a ride. Then Thursday, they wiggled us JUST ENOUGH to stop us out flat, before recovering.  Then they put in a long flat day until once again in the last  hour, they poured it on and pushed us to the high of the day.

Hello everyone, we've made it to Friday. It seems like I could say "and what a week it's been!"  almost every week. The market is going through gyrations that are really quite astounding. When you see the DOW dip 200 points and then end the day up 200, that's a 400 point round trip. For many "decades" we wouldn't see 400 points up or down in a month. Now we do it daily.

Morning folks. It's Friday, and something of an important day.

First off I was a bit perplexed about the blood red futures. Granted yesterday they couldn't hold the big green gains they had early in the day, which suggested more weakness.  But to wake up to DOW futures off 190 was simply something I didn't expect.

Good morning all, welcome to Friday and the big jobs report.

Yesterday the market stumbled itself into a slightly red close, not able to muster the firepower to continue moving higher. then overnight the Japanese yen fell again to  insanely low levels and that got global markets fired up, as they continue to use the Yen as a carry trade for of course...creating more debt instruments.
