    Fed likely to delay taper after disappointing U.S. jobs data

    American employers created fewer jobs in September than forecast, raising expectations that the US Federal Reserve will keep pumping money into the world’s largest economy at the same rate for several months yet.

    Stock markets rose on Tuesday as investors bet that the central bank would keep on buying bonds at the rate of $85bn a month until next year, and potentially even increase that figure to help fuel America’s still-fragile economic recovery.

    America added 148,000 jobs in September, according to delayed figures from the US Labour Department – far short of analysts’ forecasts of 180,000 jobs, and the 193,000 extra jobs created in August. The increase was also well below the average increase of 181,000 jobs a month which America has seen since the start of the year.

    • Obama's Curious Purge of the Military Continues

      The firing of two nuclear commanders in a week adds to a body count that suggests we have either the most corrupt and incompetent general staff in history or our military is being reshaped for other purposes.

      The Obama administration, which has fired no one over scandals such as its Fast and Furious Mexican gun-running operation, its criminal negligence in the terrorist attack on our Benghazi diplomatic mission, or the use of the IRS to target and intimidate political foes, seems to have a curious obsession lately about ethics and competence in the U.S. military.

      • Fund manager: If you believe in math, buy gold!

        Brent Johnson, the CEO of Santiago Capital, believes that economic problems in the United States will lead to a $200 rally in gold over the next two months.

        "It wouldn't surprise me to be back at $1,500 or $1,550 by the end of the year," the portfolio manager said on Thursday's "Futures Now."

        Gold, which settled on Thursday at $1,350 per troy ounce, hasn't touched $1,500 since early April, when it shed more than $200 in two harrowing sessions.

        Of course gold would trade much higher than that if JPMorgan et al weren't around.
