Just a short post this morning.

I was up last night putting together a dozen stock selections for Members with 2 or three trade ideas on each one, generally on a shorter-term than usual and with less hedging than usual, almost a downright bullish assortment just in case we get good jobs numbers today because those bears are going to find themselves in one hell of a trap if we do! 

Experts” are looking for a very pessimistic 110,000 job losses for August with a 9.6% unemployment rate.  Obviously, traders have pretty much already decided to ignore that so anything but a big dip is not going to be good news for those silly old bears, who were making me feel very lonely last week when I once again had to blame CNBC and the rest of the MSM for allowing the bears to control the message and terrify the masses over what is, essentially not a big deal in the data.

8:30 Update – Non-Farm Payrolls were “only” down 54,000 – WOO HOO!!! PARTY TIME AMERICA!!!  Actually, this sucks as we need 150,000 jobs a month just to keep up with population growth but it’s “better…
