The broader indexes dropped on a strong jobs report — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.
Payrolls rose by 263,000, just shy of the Dow Jones’ estimate of 275,000, while the unemployment rate fell 0.2% to 3.5% for September.
With job growth remaining strong, the market expects the Federal Reserve to move ahead with another 0.75% interest rate hike at its November meeting.
A lot of investors are scared right now… And when people are scared, they second guess their strategies.
That’s what makes algorithms so useful — with algos, you don’t have to second guess. You can trade consistently and without emotion, knowing that you have an edge.
That’s also why I’m holding a special event at 1:30 p.m. EDT today, Friday, Oct. 7, to share how algorithms work, explain which ones are hitting right now and which ones aren’t, answer your questions and more!
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss why weaker data is sometimes better for the stock market… an update on the long bond in light of major Fed data… volatility and how it’s impacting stocks… the top 3 sectors and the top stocks in each… major levels for key indices… plus practical considerations for the current market cycle.
This could very well be your moment… One of those moments that in time, you reflect back on and think…
“I’m glad I made that decision!”
All you need to do is watch my short training session at 1:30 p.m. EDT on Friday, Oct. 7.

P.P.S. When it comes to trading, every second counts. And in choppy markets like these, often driven by headlines, stocks can make big moves in a flash.
