Sterling Digest, April 6, 2012: the big miss

Lightning

Holiday markets

The one flash of life was NFP as the markets hardly ticked beyond that this Good Friday. While most traders deservedly enjoyed a much longer weekend, today’s thin markets set the perfect stage for a US NFP miss. Very unexpected given the string of positive US data this week but also very much aligned with what Bernanke & Co. having been saying long after those minutes were recorded. The big miss leaves markets gobsmacked for ┬átraders’ return after Easter not far from their NFP-induced peaks.
