How can anyone invest going long now after what happened yesterday. No stop loss was safe, none.

The Jobs numbers is not the best since 2006 if you exclude one time job gains from the TEMP jobs by census.

 The financial gurus could have fooled me and many others back in the day before the internet on today's numbers but things have changed, we have numbers at our finger tips now with the internet.

Unless it's a spec play (in which case it's a very tight stop) I don't use stop-loss orders.

My long value plays I'm sure in, I don't set a stop loss for those.  They have intrinsic value above the stoploss point, otherwise I would not have selected them..

You could just not use them and rely on your own dilligence to alert you when it is time to sell. 

"How could anyone invest going long..."?  I have no problems.  If I thought there was a deal to be had I'd jump in with both feet.  I don't use stoploss, therefore yesterday's "dip" was little more than a WTF moment.
