Some Saturday news
Here's your Saturday news delivery:
New Deal Demoncrat - August jobs report hit a speed bump. On the jobs report.
Calculated Risk - yeah, about that "horrible" jobs report.... He provides a chart with the best years for job creation, and the worst month in each of those years, and thus demonstrates that nearly every great year for jobs has at least one bad print. In other words, quit piddling your frilly pink panties.
Chronicles of Brodrick - various stuff. He quickly dismisses the jobs report by noting a major grocery chain was on strike last month. Sure, he's only getting this from a Business Insider article, but I'dd rather link to Brodrick anyway.
Reformed Borker (Bork Bork Bork!) - stock picking sucks. Hey Josh, ever hear of "supply and demand"? Well, there's a limited supply of alpha, isn't there? So if stock picking increases, alpha gets arbed away and you may as well just buy SPY.
Peter Brandt - a bearish technical case for precious metals. Has anyone been telling you about the descending triangle for silver, and how that's very ominous? This guy will, and he actually trades commodities.
