  • Have gasoline prices peaked? AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge reports the latest average U.S. price for a gallon of regular is $3.891, down from $3.899 the day before, $3.907 a week ago and just 1.4% higher Y/Y.

  • For Nomura, the most troubling part of today's NFP report is the 34K decline seen in retail jobs, which follows February's 29K decline. The firm doesn't think the losses, which contrast sharply with March's healthy same-store sales data, can be explained by weather, and thinks they make April 16's retail sales report especially important. Could high gas prices be responsible?  [View news story]

    never fear... futures will gap down big on the open tomorrow night but will magically levitate between 2-6 am (thanks PPT!) then open monday a.m. only down slightly, giving HFT algos a chance to "buy the dip" around 10 am. we'll be green by noon, and up 5-10 handles by the close. I think I've seen this movie before...

  • The BLS has revised higher its initial estimate of jobless claims in 56 of the past 57 weeks. While this doesn't change the improving trend in the data, writes Eric Morath, it does call into question the survey's methodology, not to mention those who would trade on the number. "Revisions," says a portfolio manager, "tend to be viewed as noise." (see also)  [View news story]

  • According to projections, earnings season - which begins in just a few weeks - is shaping up to be one of the worst since the financial crisis began. Projections for Q1 earnings growth are running as low as 0.5%, according to Standard & Poor's/Capital IQ.
