- (MX) Mexico Aug Gross Fixed Investment: -5.4% v -3.0%e
- (US) Nov Preliminary University of Michigan Confidence: 72.0 v 74.5e

- Investors have shifted into risk-on mode this morning after the release of the October jobs data. As of writing, the DJIA is up 0.53%, the S&P500 is up 0.73% and the Nasdaq is up 1.12%.

- There has been much gnashing of teeth this morning over the October jobs report, with the data challenging to parse given the impact of the government shutdown. According to BLS reporting standards, the payroll numbers should not have captured furloughs related to the shutdown but the unemployment rate would have. Accordingly, the non-farm payrolls number was pretty good: the 204K number crushed the 120K consensus. Private payrolls grew 212, topping the 125K consensus. The unemployment rate ticked up to 7.3% from 7.2% in September, which the BLS said partially reflected the decline in federal government employment. A majority of analysts called the data very unreliable, although on the whole positive.

- After the open, the preliminary reading of the November University of Michigan confidence index came in at 72, below expectations and at the lowest level in the series since December 2011. Both the current conditions and expectations components were very weak.

- Bond yields have spiked in the wake of the jobs data. The yield on the US 10-year have rocketed up to 2.75% from 2.60% before the data, while other global yields have followed its lead. Meanwhile gold spiked lower, dropping 1.84% to trade as low as $1,281. There has been much speculation about what all this means for a December Fed taper, although the consensus seems to be that December will still be too early for action. Several firms have suggested that the taper could come earlier than expected given another positive jobs reading in November.

- After dropping as low as 1.3300 in the wake of the surprise ECB rate cut yesterday, EUR/USD retraced to 1.3430, about half way to its pre-decision level. Today EUR/USD spiked lower after the jobs data, but not as low as yesterday, hitting bottom around 1.3320. USD/JPY traded in the 97 handle yesterday and was up to the 98 handle ahead of the US jobs data, and is trading around 99.10 after the numbers.

- Nvidia is up about 5.5% this morning after beating earnings expectations in Q3 and raising its quarterly dividend. There was some concern about its slightly soft forecast for Q4. Note that in Q3, sales from the company's Tegra mobile chips fell 54%.

- Shares of Cablevision are down nearly 6% despite widely beating earnings expectations in its Q3. Analysts are focused on the sequential declines across the business, in video, data and voice, for a total net add drop of about 30K, as well as lower cash flow.

- Twitter is trading below its opening price this morning, down 3% to around $43.50, but still well above its initial pricing of $26. Analysts continue to duke it out over whether the company is totally overvalued or completely and totally undervalued, with little opinion in the middle ground.
