    Conflicting Jobs Reports

    On the factory front, lots of pundits screaming factories are hiring, which is why 401K's have doubled since the low (which halved them in the first place)--Electrolux is hiring, co's are picking US factories.

    So why the gloom on the 1/2% decline on the market today? Where's the overall RETAIL buying picture? It's one thing to be bustling making inventory, it's another finding someone with a job, at the 95% employment rate, to buy those products.

    Are the factories just in time manufacturing, or ahead of the retail buying curve going to provide a glut of unwanted inventory?

    I believe that question is what creates the ying and yang this morning. It's a bubbly, second thoughts market.

    • Hey, meaty, instead of your ridiculous off topic posts, would you favor us with some poetry? More Leonard Cohen is fine or, maybe, a little Rod McKuen.

    • Any job growth at all is good news to me. That means more people with money to buy goods and services and more money to pay taxes....

      Its all good.

      Thank God we have a Democrat in office. If a republican was there, we would be in the middle of the 2nd depression right now. GOD saw fit to install a Dem in 2008. 'THY WILL BE DONE"

      • You lost me after "It's all good". Spirits in the sky and jerks in charge haven't a thing to do with the economy. That was delegated to the banksters around 1913, even though Jeffrerson warned, if you centralize banks, and give them the power to determine the value of money, they will own everything, you will own nothing, your money will become increasingly worthless, and you will never be able to save enough to retire. You will be an indentured servant to the workplace forever.

        See how that works? He had first hand experience with money called the Continental, another fiat currency worth zilch in short order.

        That's why the steady stream of income provided by covered call writing against AA, which can garner you 16-25% a year in a flat environment, keeps me ahead of the power curve.

      I didn't see anything regarding AA in this post and you know this is the AA board.
