ADP: Economy lost 157,000 jobs in October
Payroll company Automatic Data Processing Inc. estimates U.S. employers cut 157,000 jobs in October, the largest decrease in private sector employment in six years.
The ADP report comes two days before the Labor Department releases its October jobs report, expected to show a similar decline.
And if the stock marked hadn't been up and down like a yo-yo the past two months you might have some kind of a point in this thread.

If the stock market acted daily on one or two news stories, we would be in a much better position right now. Unfortunately, there are so many factors hindering the market, a 5% increase on capital gains taxes on all net income over $250,000 two years from now isn't likely something on investors' minds.
My apologies. I should've posted this in the Economy section where there might possibly be more economically savvy people, although this is also tied to the election. This has been an historical indicator that provides insight into how confident investors are with the next round of politicians.
