Underlying Inflation in Brazil's Thriving Economy Scaring Investors

on May 06, 2011 9:15 am by Girish Gupta

Financial Markets: The Good, Bad and Ugly

on May 06, 2011 9:50 am by Todd Harrison

Go figure; the financial media dutifully explained all week why this month's payroll data was poised to disappoint on a few fronts. With the S&P having closed yesterday below the all-important 1340 level, the stage was set for collective fret. So what shot does the BLS up and pull? Better than expected job growth in April (thanks, in some ways, to McDonald's (MCD) which hired 62,000 folks... Read More

on May 06, 2011 11:05 am by Todd Harrison

on May 06, 2011 12:35 pm by Mike Mish Shedlock
