It’s going to be a long weekend for those holding stocks and believing in the “recovery” lie.
Today, the US government released its jobs report and the market was expecting an additional 200,000 jobs were added in May. Instead, the number came in at a paltry 38,000.
One analyst, Naseem Aslam of Think Forex UK said, “The U.S. nonfarm payroll data was crazy and completely unbelievable and this is the last set of important data before the Fed meeting. When you look at the data set, it really boggles your mind because the unemployment rate has ticked lower. The productivity picture is even more confusing as it is not increasing.”
It can seem confusing IF you fell for the “recovery” story that the Federal Reserve, Barack “Peddling Fiction” Obama and the mainstream media have been peddling.
