Even though economic data has shown mild improvement, Friday’s event told a different story, showing that the U.S economy could now be at a critical turning point.

After 4 days of suspense, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released its awaited job numbers, surprising analysts with better than expected results. According to the numbers, the U.S economy shredded only -247k workers, during the month of July, much less than the consensus of -330k.
