Perhaps a tad too soon? Maybe, but I suppose the markets will in any case open tomorrow morning like always so fair enough.

I remember a blogpost by Barry Ritholtz, the smug bastard, about how markets react to major events. The analysis looked at such things as assassinations of US pollies, major acts of terror, major natural disasters and the conclusion was that even though such events were shocking they were not sufficient to cause the markets to change direction, in effect they had no impact on the markets.

Of course he may have been looking at slightly longer term than day traders do. Perhaps there will be a quiver on Monday morning that can be traded by those agile enough.

Breaking news? more like breaking wind...

The Australian Bureau of Statistics came out with the latest jobs and unemployment figures today which were sufficiently startling enough to quite noticeably move our currency and our stock indices.

This is how Bloomberg headlined it: "Australian Employment Soars 58,600 in October, Currency Jumps"

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/201...-currency-jumps

But it seems no-one is buying it. Not the economist dude quoted in the Bloomberg article, not Westpac's analysts...

http://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2015/11/we...odgy-jobs-data/

Not even some of the mainstream media reporters (some of whom normally give any bit of news a positive spin to suck up to their employers' major advertisers).

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-11-12/don&...nalysis/6935702

And yet despite the universal pasting these figures are getting, most analysts then go on to implicitly rely on them to say that things really are getting better in Australia. Really? If the figures are shit then why not simply discard them and look for proxies to get a vibe for the local jobs markets. It is what analysts do if they have concerns about official stats released in China.

Fair dinkum this effort by the ABS is as embarrassing as the tour match for the NZ cricket team being called off because the pitch was rubbish. Not impressed. mad.gif

BREAKING NEWS: Hostages pressed against window in Sydney cafe

Should've kept our soldiers in Sydney, rather than spending all those $Billions to fly them to Syria. Much shorter distances.
Could even use Public Transport into Martin Place.

Who writes your stuff flower?
Nice to see you giving the old 30 minute chart a run when it supports your statement.Your own chart shows a change from 6.15 to 6.20. That certainly is chaotic!
