Now that the Government has reopened, at least for the next 3-4 months, the BLS will starting bombing the tape with delayed data releases like the NFP, Unemployment Rate, etc… The following is the updated BLS schedule. Make sure to trade accordingly.

The market might or might not react to these data points, as they’re delayed. Also, most of these data points might not be as accurate; so don’t be surprised if the NFP increases or decreases dramatically. I’m expecting the distortion in data to last for the remainder of the year .i.e. We can only get some legitimately accurate data in January 2014.
