Notes: Report came in better than expected with 374K when 385K was expected. The market had recently hit a 3 week high of 89.00 and was strongly correcting lower. The claims were not enough to bring the bulls back into the market, so it was caught in the selloff. The market fell much more, but not due to the claims.
