Points of interest:

  • Interest Rates: With a new head of the EU – Christine LeGrande – our financial sector – interest rates – moved lower. Why? The EU talks of stimulating their markets by a renewed round of adding money – along with lower rates – to their economies. Watch the inflation gauge, as well the political weathervanes.
  • Stock market: In spite of the headlines – China, EU, tariffs, trade, and politics – markets are at record high levels. For me, the DOW is seeking a new trading range.
  • Inverted Yield Curve? Not yet. After bottoming with a spread of 0.11 %, mid-December, we are near double today. The yield curve is widening, not narrowing.
  • Lending: Lending guidelines are again, consumer friendly, yet disciplined.

Market News

1) GDP: US economy: Robust, better than expected 1st Quarter growth of 3.1 %, with higher inventories in anticipation of better Summer sales. A few indices show a slowing growth mode. We will watch closely. It has been a long-timing since we have seen so many positive numbers – GDP, job growth, wages, productivity, manufacturing, etc.

2) Unemployment: Are we finally bottoming out? So some thought just a couple of months ago. Instead numbers are even lower. Yet such numbers are important to watch. I suspect a sideway trend due to challenges of new hires being qualified and as we continue having strong retirement / leaving the work force numbers.

Conclusion: Potential for our next recession – not in the foreseeable future.
