  • Stock futures (SPY, DIA, QQQ) remain little-changed, but the 10-year Treasury yield jumps to 2.69% from 2.63% following the strong June jobs report which saw payrolls gain 288K and the unemployment rate fall to 6.1%.
  • TLT -0.6%
  • Gold tumbles, now off 1.4% at $1,312 per ounce.
  • GLD -0.9%
  • Previously: Jobs gain of 288K; UE rate down to 6.1%

    Labor force partecipation rate at 35yr lows,plus sluggish average hourly earnings(dipped to 2.0%y/y),very negative for decent consumer spending,not portend very well for 2nd qtr Gdp reading;so watch this knee-jerk reaction on Tlt,ready to sell puts.Regards

    If Zerohedge was ever even neutral of good news then we could say they look at facts.
    The US debt could be $0 with no inflation and 100% employment and they would find some way to make it the worst news ever.

    What a crock. Gold 'slumps' every single non-farm payroll day w/a little help from the U.S. gov't.

    Kitco ended the day quoting spot gold at Bid/Ask 1319.60/1320.60.
    Yahoo quotes futures Gold Jul 14 $1,320.40 and Gold 100 oz. Aug 14 $1,319.40.
    So what's this $1,312 number?

    When ever I need a quick laugh I can always, always count on the editorials spewing forth from the pages of seeking alpha about why gold prices are down or going down. The impressive level of imagination, creativity and determination on display is a constant reminder of just how powerful and dark the forces working against the people really are......................
