Market Performance For The Prior Week

Source: YCharts
Disclaimer: Past performance is no guarantee of future performance

The Good News

Shipping costs are getting better 

And people are still financially healthy enough to quit

And maybe openings are beginning to decline?

The Bad News

The jobs report was far below expectations

And the participation rate has yet to pick up

While wage increases seem to be sticky

Putting the Fed in a tough spot. And there’s officially a new worry out there. 

The State Of The Market

Inflation and the expectation of Fed tapering soon has lifted yields

Which has impacted the S&P during the shorter term. But it’s not a perfect relationship.

Financials, Energy, and Commodities have been the winners from this rate increase

But all eyes are on earnings as we enter earnings season. Companies are expecting slower growth.

But also pay attention to margins. Can companies successfully pass on price increases? They have so far.

Which is all resulting in lower expectations for 2022
