The opinions expressed below are my own

Waiting for tomorrow.  Not that the nonfarm payrolls data (180k est vs 222k prior) will really shake up the world, but what the heck else are we going to look forward to?

While the S&P fell small today the action was tame and it qualifies as noise.  There’s nothing for us to extrapolate.  Capital flow was about normal at 99%.  Industrials led today (+0.5%) while energy lagged (-1.3%).  So to summarize…. we moved just a little on average flow.

I wish there were something interesting to share with you here but there just isn’t.  Tomorrow we’ll cover the NFP print and any market reactions.  I think we’ll check in on earnings season too.

See you tomorrow,
