    The average forecast was 241k and the number came out 252K.. so that ballpark was about right.

    I wouldn't get too caught up trying to predict the move or number itself, just prep for how you'll play it out depending on different post-number price moves.

    Absolutely agree. I try to avoid trading News because of the spreads/whipsaws, especially on big news such as NFP, rate announcements.

    The result definately has the Fed with their hands full. They desperately want inflation with it no where appearing.
