Yeah, but don't forget the magical "better-than-expected" (by a lot), and the fact that 146K is higher than population growth (although barely) so it means at least employment isn't lagging, and especially the fact that the UE rate dropped .2 when it was expected to rise .2. That's big. I'm surprised as hell, because I've been calling this a bear market for more than a month, but it is what it is.
This is the SPY message board, not an economic policy forum. I'm here to discuss stocks, and this is going to send stocks rallying, at least to re-test post-crash highs. Whether new highs are set, I think, will depend on next month's report. If that one disappoints and revises this one downward, I bet the S&P will double top. But for now...where's that rally monkey?
