WHAT IS HAPPENING
Today payrolls in the US. A big increase in those being employed is expected with the rate of unemployment expected to reach 4%
This level of unemployment is seen as a reasonable target achieved and therefore they do not need QE.
Good employment nos have been good for stocks historically but the more good the economic news, the less financial stimulus required. The market likes the easy quick hit of financial stimulus. The other way takes longer and only certain stocks will do well!!
Yesterdays action was sell rallies at the open as suggested, dips then were bought specially at the 50dma on the Nasdaq. I will wait for 1.30 this avo but having had a good week I think I will hold fire unless something obvious appears.
Rates are rising and Tech suffers in this environment. Its good for Banks /Financials.
