  • Initial Jobless Claims [View news story]
    I'm employed. So are all the people around me right now. We are all full time, no one is flipping burgers. Everyone here makes well over the minimum wage. We must be an anomaly.

    Or, you just held onto your stocks and rode the wave down and then back up, ending up wealthier in 2014 than 2007. If true unemployment hit 15%, 85% kept their jobs and 401k's, never wavering from placing their paycheck contributions.

    Worked for me.

    Just a bit of a comparison, and I may be way off base. The Asian crisis in July of 1997 was quite devastating to the far east, some currencies tumbled close to 40%. Although the crisis brought stocks down initially, within a couple of months they were above July 1 levels again. A breakdown in commodity prices can be good for the American consumer (I remember paying $0.79 per gallon at one point for gas). Of course, American consumers, when given low prices, will go ahead and buy more.

  • September Job Cut Report could spell lowest since 1997 [View news story]
    Give me a break, you make it sound like we are at 90% unemployment. You just hate good news, don't you.

    ADP Employment showed 202K jobs added last month and this month rose to 213K. This shows the continued improvement of the jobs market.

    ISM Manufacturing: the 56.6 reading was the 3rd best showing this year.
