The Labor Department’s Jobs Report

The Labor Department’s Jobs Report came in much worse than analysts expected, with 240,000 jobs lost in October. In addition, the Unemployment Rate jumped to its highest level since 1994.

In market news, Stocks are coming off their worst back-to-back days since the 1987 Stock Market crash. Although Stocks opened higher this morning, they could be in for more of a decline as today’s poor Jobs Report sinks in. This could create selling pressure on Stocks, which may help bonds improve.

Currently, prices are battling a strong ceiling of resistance. Should prices break out above current levels, it would be very bullish. Therefore, I recommend floating, even though prices are modestly weaker right now and may even worsen slightly before bouncing.
