But is the better than expected jobs report really the reason for this rally let -- and Jared Levy the senior equity strategist for jet that.
I'm sorry but I can't say -- today Zacks investment research.
-- if it did the jobs number the made these stocks go to the sky.
I don't think so -- you know I think partially and you know all your guess -- -- a great point you brought up a great point earlier we talked about the participation rate.
The Reagan era I mean you're talking a whole different world first of all.
Money is not made the way it was in the eighties jobs aren't conducted a business's that you've got -- the weighted what's in the eighties everything is done now.

The drive today the market rallied today yeah I think -- knee jerk reaction without the jobs number but you know committed -- this Jerry.
A lot of people have been have been short -- -- if you look at short interest and some like it Dow Jones yes I'm betting odds are that down.
Right and what they're doing now it was -- -- -- is big drop all these people that are sure they're covering their -- because they're gonna get what's on a margin call which is not fun today.
Accelerate that rally -- feeling.

And advance the debts the company called Knight trading that lost four and forty million dollars and I've had sort of brought everybody to their needs is causing individual investors across the country to say.

They should not.
Have the ability to push the button.
They do not possess logic.
They do not have a thought process always think about.
Is what numbers are going into it just don't put your finger on the button you know Alex that's -- they should be able to just derive value well we are gonna have more hiccups like that -- are you saying that because you're human trader and -- really basically competing with with the computerized trading.
I can't I can't get it anymore Gerry I'd ever been ninety's I left the floor -- to the night trading put me out of business.
