Monday is a sparse day for economic announcements but investors can anticipate several T Bill auctions with a small serving of earnings news. The Non Farm Payroll figure pleasantly surprised the bulls today triggering an across the board buying frenzy. Stocks surged higher on the better than expected employment news and decent consumer credit figures. The VIX or fear index reacted in kind plummeting ever lower on the session. The DJIA surged 122.06, the tech heavy Nasdaq advanced 34.04, and the broad based S&P 500 climbed 15.72.
