A survey done by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics to help measure job vacancies. It collects data from employers about their businesses' employment, job openings, recruitment, hires and separations.
JOLTS defines Job Openings as all positions that are open (not filled) on the last business day of the month. A job is "open" only if it meets all three of the following conditions:
1. A specific position exists and there is work available for that position.
2. The job could start within 30 days, whether or not the establishment finds a suitable candidate during that time.
3. There is active recruiting for workers from outside the establishment location that has the opening.
A reading that is stronger than forecast is generally supportive (bullish) for the USD, while a weaker than forecast reading is generally negative (bearish) for the USD.

  •            Enrich the conversation, don’t trash it.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well. In addition, any of the above-mentioned violations may result in suspension of your account.
  • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended.

Yesterday's JOLTs was negative, yet the USD went super bullish? Why was that?

JOLT is so out of whack it has already been normalized. Too bad the PCE reports will confirm a perfect storm. 40 year deflation will be shattered as spikes in inflation will make the word transitory mean years. The biggest fastest move in bond yields is about to be seen.  they have gotten this one badly wrong. China will not be able to bail us out this time around, nor will they want to.  Shiller P/E hit 40. 44 was the largest ever in 2000. Next 2 months will break that number. INSANE markets, Tulips are replaced with mystical coins backed by nothing secured by nothing. President of US extorted nations, used DOJ for own personal gains, tried overthrowing government with the help of the GOP.  heck even the holocaust is an opinion now. But i guess YOU the masses don;lt yet see it?  We are a self destructive species.

We saw the damage the NFP did last week so this should be a no brainer. Here is my prediction SELL USDXXX & BUY XXXUSD, take trade 15 seconds before release. Thank me later.

increase in budget deficit shows that economic activities are slow down, and yesterday the increase in crude oil stock level, also indicate less demand in the market. So I think Job opening will be less than expected.

Gig jobs don't count . Door dash jobs don't count . Uber jobs dont count .  Jolt needs to reflect modern times or the economists will be hitting their stick on a dead tree stump.

A reading that is stronger than forecast is generally supportive (bullish) for the USD, while a weaker than forecast reading is generally negative (bearish) for the USD.. . reading = higher then forecast . . this means what? how does it affect specific pairs?. Please provide examples
