the payroll numbers are due out in a little while. looking at the bloomberg economic calender, I click on the 'consensus' button. I don't know why, I don't usually care. but I clicked anyway. check this out:



I had heard talk of an actual gain, but I had no idea of the sheer magnitude projected. Mr Consensus is estimating that 10 (ten) (!!!!!!!!!!) jobs were added last month. lucky souls.
