    US Stocks: Don't blindly buy into Nasdaq sell-off

    Last Friday's sell-off in US stocks wasn't just a classic risk-off move but it also led to more mean-reversion lower in many of the very momentum names that earlier in the week were declared oversold by market pundits. Watch the Nasdaq closely.

    US March Employment Report: A boring +192k versus expectations of +200k, but the +26k revsision of the Feb. data means it is a slightly positive report. Also positive is the household survey coming in at +476k. The reason the unemployment rate didn't drop on this strong number was that the participation rate rose +0.2% to 63.2% - a 6-month high. The Average Hourly Earnings data was disappointing (flat vs. +0.2% expected).

    The report initially saw the US dollar stronger versus the Japanese yen and the major European currencies, but the strong rally in government bonds suggests the reaction pattern is not clear-cut and that the market may not be reading this report as a good one - so the USD status is a bit unclear. If EURUSD ends the day well back above 1.3700, it extends the uncertainty here on whether we break lower. Meanwhile, pro-cyclical currencies are storming higher on this number, as it doesn't encourage the view that the Fed steps up the tapering/interest rate move threat.
