    Stock Market Recovery

    Analysts have been pretty confident that the stock market recovery is well under way, but company insiders might be saying something different. (read more at Millennium-Traders.Com)

    Economic data released today:

    MBA Mortgage Applications:
    U.S. MBA Market Index rose 4.4% at 517.3 compared to last week reading of 495.4; U.S. MBA Purchase Index rose 0.9% at 264.4 compared to last week reading of 262; US MBA Refinance Index rose 7.2% at 1996.7 compared to last week reading of 1862.1.

    Employment Change:
    ADP Sees July US Private Sector Jobs fell 371,000
    ADP July US Private Sector Jobs Expected to drop by 350,000.
    Nonfarm Private Employment Highlights for July: Total employment -371,000; Small businesses represent payrolls with 1-49 employees -138,000; Medium businesses represent payrolls with 50-499 employees -159,000; Large businesses represent payrolls with more than 499 employees -74,000; Goods-producing sector -169,000; Service-providing sector -202,000; Addendum: Manufacturing industry -99,000. Nonfarm private employment decreased 371,000 from June to July 2009 on a seasonally adjusted basis. July's employment decline was the smallest since October 2008 and continues the notable improvement between Q1 and Q2 2009. Despite indications recently that overall economic activity appears to be stabilizing, employment - which normally trails overall economic activity, is more likely to decline for several more months, possibly at a diminishing rate. Employment in the goods-producing sector declined 169,000, with employment in the manufacturing sector dropping 99,000 which is its smallest monthly decline since September 2008. For the month of July we saw the 30th consecutive monthly decline for construction employment and brings the total decline for construction jobs to 1,483,000, since the peak of January 2007. Employment in the financial services sector experienced its 20th consecutive monthly decline. The matched sample used to develop the ADP National Employment Report was derived from ADP data, which during the twelve month period through June 2009, averaged approximately 400,000 U.S. business clients and represented over 23 million U.S. employees. This approximately represents the size of the matched sample used this month. The decline in small-size businesses was the smallest in 8 months continuing the notable improvement between Q1 and Q2 2009. It is likely we will see continuing decline in small-size businesses for several more months. Since its peak in January 2008, small-size businesses have shed almost 2.4 million jobs.
