  • This was the blurb describing the news from the CNBC website:

     

    "Weekly applications for U.S. unemployment benefits ticked up slightly last week, the latest sign of stability in the job market."

     

    That seems so Orwellian to me - an increase in the unemployed is a sign of strength!

     

    Anyway as they say it could have been a lot worse.

  • So where's the recession the doomers have been calling for...3 straight years now?

     

    I remember a guy here on SA that around August of 2010 said: "things are collapsing, you would see", "the S&P 500 going back to 600 soon"....hahahahahaha....

  • Yes, because a stock exchange awash in liquidity and turbocharged by ZIRP is an accurate reflection of US fundamentals.

  • Someone's getting fired for printing a non recovering headline number like that. Last weeks number was revised downward, now that's a rarity; someone else is probably getting fired for that one too, you're supposed to make it look good when it first comes out not after.
