Getting There

I'm expecting an above consensus employment number tomorrow (i.e. 250+), as I think January's employment figure was artificially low due to weather and past data missing the (albeit small) turn.



We shall see...

250k print? It could happen. The break down will be interesting to see. Government worker layoffs are really starting up so that may be an issue down the line.

jb- the link you sent was to a "dollar is falling" freak out (whether we should be freaked out is open to argument), not a real unemployment figure freak out.
