New Jobs Chart

This chart shows the number of New Jobs created monthly, in relation to the S&P 500.  New Jobs data releases are highly-anticipated, and tend to move the stock market greatly.  Market timers use this data to judge general strength and weakness of the US economy, to predict business conditions going forward.  Note, however, that New Job creation falls (jobs are eliminated) during recessions.  Thus, this may be a coincidental, and not a leading, indicator for the stock market.
