Strange trading going on. The DJIA tanked HARD on large volume going into yesterday's close, perhaps anticipating a weak BLS jobs figure this morning.
That turned out to be incorrect, at least on the "headline" data that showed a tiny loss of 11k jobs. As I pointed out earlier, these numbers are a joke, and that could be why the market quickly resumed yesterday's selloff.
Among gainers today are the staffing firms, up on the perceived improving jobs climate.
