    This is what I am hearing circulating in the market.

    I have no idea if this is true or not, and I highly doubt it, but it is what I'm hearing.

    There is often at least one unexpected blow-out number coming out of recessions.

    It also would at least partly explain why the market goes up virtually every day.

    if it's true, that's bad news.

    for obama.

    don't ask me why, someone will explain.

    You're hearing a specific number when we're not even half way through March?

    As it is still March, an April Jobs Report sounds like they are preparing to cook the books ala the Jobs Save or Created nonsense.

    Whoever is reporting it seems to know the score before the game is even played. Hmmmm.

    I've been spreading that rumor since I'm fully invested in the stock market. I'll be closing out my positions on March 31st.

    I was referring to the report released in April, which is for March. Sorry for screwing up the nomenclature.

    Oh. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Still, the game is not over and the score is in?

    Good news, if the numbers aren't cooked.
