The market suggests otherwise. The "bubble" remains inflated due to the Fed's action, and will only deflate (slowly or otherwise) when the Fed changes course. The fact that the market is up solidly and oil is up another $1.50, suggests traders know the jobs report is much worse than what CNBC suggested.
When the only job growth is part-time jobs in the bartending and fast-food restaurant business, the "big money" knows this is not good. No matter what CNBC says.
Oil cannot possibly be up $1.50 because of events in Egypt. It's all about the jobs report and the weakening dollar, regardless of what the dollar does today.
