Burrito bites

Good day! Happy Friday! Good Friday! A short trading week has given us a lot to think about, as we enter a new month and a new quarter. What started off positively with decent manufacturing data has ended with a whimper from Nonfarm Friday numbers, as job creation in the US leans much more mediocre than marvelous. Crude has headed lower this week, while natural gas further further further plunders to 10-year lows as storage surpluses extend and neutral temperatures abound to keep demand in check.  May these bites make your Good Friday better:

The Burnt Burrito Award of the Week goes to today’s monthly US unemployment data. And, hark, this scariest unemployment chart ever highlights it.

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the Week goes to the recent statistic that energy demand met by domestic sources in the US is up to 81%.

Happy Easter – may your weekend be filled with chocolate bunnies!
