What you need to know on Friday, September 3rd:
We have good news and bad news Employment Report. However, the market is likely to see this as good news as bad news means more incentives in the longer term. The bad news at the time was that fewer jobs were being created in the US than expected, with non-farm payrolls at 235,000, well below a forecast of 733,000. Will the economy slow down then? US futures bounced around on release, but for now the bears are winning. We’re just warming up here. The bond market was relatively unmoved, but the dollar weakened. The bigger picture means the Fed has more reason to postpone its taper plans and rate hikes. The Nasdaq should be the big beneficiary today and outperform.
Bitcoin appears to be the big winner as it appears to have finally broken through and held the $ 50,000 level. Crypto stocks are almost all higher in pre-market trading. Oil is finally back above $ 70 while gold is at $ 1,820.
