The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 8599 on 1/9/09, as the stock market fell on a better then expected jobs number but the revisions from the previous two months have Wall Street questioning the truthfulness of today's data. The employment data for December was out in pre market and showed the US losing 524,000 jobs with the unemployment rate spiking to 7.2%. The problem is we got another big downward revision for the November report. The Government told us we lost an additional 150k jobs in November in addition to the 533,000 loss already reported. ( -683,000 total )
How are we supposed to believe the jobs number today was correct? This is why I believe the stock market was down today. The Dow Jones is starting to break down but has continued to hold my key support level of 8500. This is something to watch. I will have full technical analysis over the weekend, Right Here.

Stock Market Report 1/9/09 January 9, 2009

This morning, 1/9/09, the stock market is breaking down due to what I think is a false jobs report. Government Data showed that the USA lost 524,000 jobs in the month of December but told us we lost an additional 150,000 jobs in November bringing the total in November to around 683,000 jobs lost. The same thing happened in October ( revision of around 150,000 lost ). We will know in a month if today's jobs report is accurate.

Furthermore, I am watching next support level of 8500 on the Dow Jones. It looks as though we may test this level today. Keep in mind, during the last week in December, we traded below 8500 for a few days on light volume and bounced so the true support level could be 8350. The Volatility Index is not spiking so it seems as though there isn't much panic, a positive sign.

The following is a report on Dry Bulk Shipping Rates for 1/09/09. This data is critical for how the DryBulk Shipping Stocks such as DryShips ( DRYS ), Excel Maritime Carriers ( EXM ), Diana Shipping ( DSX ), Genco Shipping ( GNX ), TBS International ( TBSI ), Navios Maritime ( NM ), and OceanFreight ( OCNF ) will trade during the day. As you probably know, the Dry Bulk Shipping index can tell you a lot about the state of the World Economy. When Bulk Shipping Rates are at all time highs, the World Economy is outstanding. When Bulk Shipping Rates are as low as they have been lately, it signifies that the world economy has come to a screeching halt.
