Is there no one at Reuters who is aware the surge came before the data was released?
The Market response was set, period, there is no other explanation.
The Market "surges" on bad news because that means more easing, the market surges on "good" news (unemployment up and a contracting economy is good news????) because we're recovering.
They pushed the futures higher to tell them small minds what to think, play it all day, don't bank on a paint job.
THE FUTURES WERE UP 100+ BEFORE THE DATA.
