Participation up 2 tics to 63.4

Prior revised up 2k to 147.

U1 up .1 to 3.6. 

A pretty good report.

Equity futures were lagging a bit earlier after a stellar week.  They appear to be moving to positive territory.

225 is a good number, but in the report, some figures for earlier in 2019 were revised quite a bit lower.  

but still , at least it is positive, and a good number.  (we'll see later if it gets revised one way or another).
