A Failed Rally, was expecting DJIA to be up 200-300 points on Jobs data.



December 04, 2009 – Comments (7)

The DJIA fell 100+ points yesterday before the close , so basically right now we are flat with yesterday. Thats a failed rally because the jobs data should have caused a 200-300 point move in the DJIA today.

Sometimes there is a big move in the afternoon, so I wouldn't call it failed yet.

Also it's worth consdering that, without the job data announcement, the market may have continued on the downward trend started yesterday.  Failed rally?  Might turn out to be.  But I wouldn't call it such just yet.

USD is up 1%  so market is up 1% + 1% = 2% if valued by bucket of currencies. It is up 3.5% if measured by gold.

yeah i expect the market to go back down as the dollar strengthens.

There is a huge correction going on, no idea why, but I just bought into gold today.  I don't expect the dollar strength to hold.

TSTC on 3G upgrade in CHINA

TSTC posted .41 eps last week on 3G upgrades.

Keep this in the back of your mind:
"Just one Chinese telecom alone will spend $4B in 3G upgrades in 2010."

Should easily boost TSTC well into 2011. Report this comment

Good news have only a limited impact at this point in time because they make speculators worry about an interest rate hike from 0% to 0.25%. Unsubstantiated of course, but you must understand the market psychology. If my entire fortune depended on cheap liquidity from the Fed, I would also be worried.

Investors realize that the jobs number is fake.

I'm not sure how it was faked, but I'm betting they did something like not adjusting for temporary seasonal employment.
