Numbers will suck but the MSM is already spinning...
from Fox - UE jumps to 18% YIPPEE
In some instances, as counter-intuitive as it might sound, an increase in the unemployment rate can be a good sign. Consider, for example, a working age population of 11 people, nine of whom are working, one of whom is unemployed (meeting the definition) and one of whom is neither. The unemployment rate would be 10%: one unemployed divided by the sum of those employed and unemployed, 10. Now assume the economy starts to improve. The individual on the sidelines is encouraged at the possibility of getting a job and starts to look, meeting the definition of “unemployed.” Now, the labor force totals eleven: nine employed and two unemployed producing an unemployment rate of 18%: a higher unemployment rate even as the economy improves.
The numbers don't matter, you cannot win with FAZ. If it beats expectations (like 90% of data right now), then it is 'better than expected' and the market rallies. If it falls short of expectations it is called the 'bottom' and the makret rallies. Keep trying to fight the trend you will lose more and more every day. Market needs a huge upside capitulation before selling off. Maybe a 500-1000 point day.
