I think I need to install this in my side bar!

A combination of 5 most important data points change monthly + the 5 most recent data points would be Ideal. Permanent data points: NFP, U3 Unemployment, CPI, GDP and 10 year Interest Rates are the ones I want to be permanent, updating as new data comes out. Below that, I would like to see whatever the 5 most recent releases were.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
