Anyone shorting stocks today ahead of Jobs report Friday?

Seems pretty naive in my opinion to short now with the trend in the jobs numbers strongly favoring longs.

Shorting ahead of the jobs numbers in the past worked like magic only because the trend was on the way down. That trend has now reversed and shorting ahead of such reports is dangerous to your portfolio.

Don't want to say I told you so, but there it is with a massive beat:
