divergences of job data

i looked at today's nonfarm payroll job data, and last several weeks initial jobless claims data.
there are divergences between them.
initial jobless claims is highly $spx correlated.
nonfarm payroll is NOT $spx correlated.
the highly $spx correlated initial jobless claims implies $spx should sharply plunge below 1100. yes, $spx below 1100, more than 200 $spx points below current level. i will cover this topic in the weekend report.

ps. pelican, in history, i think ben will be remembered as mr. transitory. that's the title i give to ben on the day of fomc news conference, lol
