A diary of the thought process behind my investment decisions
I heard an explanation that the snowstorms might have helped cause the rise in claims this week. Regardless, the numbers are still dreadful for where we are in the recovery. If we get a lot of hand wringing ahead of next week's claims numbers that might be a good time to go long for a trade. A negative outcome would likely be baked in and the upside is if the snowstorms did indeed effect this week's numbers or a plain old buy the bad news reaction.
