U.S. Jobs Report: What to Watch For
At 8:30 a.m. Eastern time Friday, the Labor Department will report the latest figures on hiring and unemployment in March. Fairly or not, the data will be a measure of President Trump’s success in terms of job creation in the early days of his administration.
Wall Street is predicting that the economy gained 180,000 jobs last month. That suggests economists believe that hiring slowed down from its robust pace in February, when the economy also recorded healthy wage growth.

On the Tape Today | 4-7-17
CRM | Salesforce exploded through previous resistance @ $84 and settled into an inside day. Game planning a further move higher with an $85.50 buy-stop. Initial target to sell is $91. Stop loss on a close below $84.25. If the stock price trades lower I plan to let it go.
Tape Reading the SPY ETF
A tough week to trade.
For the first time in a while, scalping is the only obvious trend you can find. And that trend changes by the hour. If you’re thinking about testing another strategy this because you got bounced around this week, be patient.
If your trading plan worked in the past, it should work again in the future. That’s how probabilities work.
The $SPY produced another melted candlestick yesterday. Indecision rules the stock market this week. Most traders I spoke to believe the U.S. jobs report ignites volatility this morning.
Maybe, maybe not. At least we get to know before the market opens.
The market is sloppy right now. Don’t let your trading be. Follow through seems to have vanished. Keep your share size lower and trade for cash flow unless your stock has room to go on the daily charts.
