The unemployment rate was unchanged at 5.1%. More people dropped out of the labor force.   The Department of Labor revised the August employment numbers from 173,000, down to just 136,000.  The disappointing back-to-back employment reports were the worst pair in three years. Employment gains for July were also revised down from 245,000 to 223,000. The combined revisions for July and August lopped off 59,000 jobs from previous reports. Normally, the August jobs number is revised higher, not lower. Because of education related jobs and other variables, the August report has been notorious for upward revisions; typically at least 35,000 positions are added to the initial count. Not today. Six of the past eight reports have been revised lower in subsequent months.   Taken together, the three months averaged 167,000, a total that, while representing expansion, also signifies a major slowdown from the 260,000 per month clip for all of 2014. Moreover, at the beginning of the year, the three-month average was 312,000. Overall in 2015, job creation is now below the 200,000 milestone, …

Most of the session saw the major averages hovering around breakeven. The Nasdaq Composite eked out another record high. The economic news was mixed; durable goods orders were weak but new home sales were fairly strong. While stocks have been trading in a very tight range to start the year, some might call it boring. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index hasn’t posted a gain or loss of 2 percent or more for 126 days, the longest streak since one ending in February 2007. Meanwhile, the bond market has been pretty exciting but not in a good way. Longer-dated Treasuries have been jumping all over the place, posting some of the biggest back-to-back gains and losses on record as the Federal Reserve talks about raising interest rates and European leaders act out a Greek tragedy.   The bond market is supposed to be a safe haven, and so bond investors have pulled $327 million from exchange-traded funds focused on this longer-dated debt in the past week alone, and $1.4 billion year-to-date.   The Commerce Department says non-defense capital goods orders excluding aircraft rose …
