Its a holiday weekend, so I am not going to detail all of the usual factors about NFP. Last month’s critique – THE MOST IMPORTANT EVER NFP blah blah blah — should be reread; You can see the past 1000 or so kvetching posts on the subject of NFP here).

The more interesting news is the sudden resurgency of embracing equities overseas. Following our 1pm close on Wednesday, Europe had a gangbusters rally — and we are set to follow suit.

One other thing to remember today: Rookies are manning the terminals. Anything can happen!

Me, I’m on the beach today — it looks gorgeous out . . .

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.

    Bonds did not like that at all. Maybe the thing Ben didn’t say that he later stressed that he didn’t mean either, will turn out to be what he will end up doing before he was supposed to. Good news is bad.
