Which jobs number came out?  There was a BLS report January 4th (good numbers in an absolute sense, but highest unemployment in five months), and another BLS report is due on February 1st.

OK, it's the Moody's jobs numbers.  Do they use seasonal adjustments?  I'm a little concerned that they are showing fewer jobs added than January of 2018, and we all know how the 2018 market turned out.

Well, the democrats can't take over the government until next year (in terms of knowing election outcomes). So, 2019 is probably going to be Uge

Seems like almost certainly a spurious correlation. During every recovery you're going to top out how many jobs can be added. I think the main takeaway is that it came in seriously higher than expectations.

NASDAQ (2.2%) did even better than the Dow (1.8%).

 

I have some shares I plan to sell in the next week or two, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet.

Opened up a small position in SHO.
Earnings announce 2/12/19. Small money made already, but I'd like to Hold it till they announce their fourth quarter results because they usually give a huge dividend at the end of the year. If they don't I can still take the short term loss in late 2019 or early 2020.

https://www.cnbc.com...nuary-2019.html

 

January BLS numbers are 134K above expectations, but December BLS numbers got revised downwards by 90K.  That nets out to a 44K surprise from the BLS numbers.

 

The Moody's numbers were a 35K surprise, so I'd say the BLS numbers are even better than Moody's.
