'SoldAtTheTop' is not a pessimist by nature but a true skeptic and realist who prefers solid and sustained evidence of fundamental economic recovery to 'Goldilocks,' 'Green Shoots,' 'Mustard Seeds,' and wholesale speculation.

It's important to note that with this months release, ADP has teamed up with Moody's Analytics and completely revised all their jobs data in an effort to provide a more precise depiction of private job market dynamics as well as offer additional breakouts not found in prior releases.   

Perusing the rest of the data in the ADP dataset you can see the the economy is currently showing the most growth for small to mid-sized service providing jobs with goods-producing jobs remaining near trough levels. 

Look for Friday‚Äôs BLS Employment Situation Report to likely show somewhat similar trends.
