Confidence was surging this morning with the big jobs report beat from the Good Friday holiday. The Labor Department noted that nonfarm payrolls increased by 916,000 in March, and the unemployment rate fell to 6% – this was far beyond expectations of the 675,000 gains economists were expecting. Given the holiday Friday, pent up demand over the weekend led investors to buying stocks in the morning with all indexes well into the green. How long can it last? It will depend on how many more trillions get pumped into the market.
