Are you serious, the US economy created 80,000 jobs and the markets react by going down? What is wrong with people? Celebrate. Celebrate the fact that things are going in the right direction. Isn't it fabulous that the US economy actually created jobs? Besides, I've learnt from experience that the data released at the end of a month does not tell the whole story, there is always a correction that comes in two months later. Sometimes the correction improves the originally reported results by a huge margin - is anybody listening at that time - No, I don't think so, the market and investors and news-mongers alike move on to other sensational news. The truth is that the economy in North America is much better. The truth is that the economies all around the world are much better. When companies as well as individuals deal with the situation and move on, not letting themselves get stuck things start falling into place. One thing leads to another and before you know it the market is in full boom - and you missed the boat because you were too scared to step into it while the skies were overcast.
