Things that matter to the markets… Jobs data, Fed expectations, and headlines

Joel Elconin, Co-Host of the Benzinga Pre-Market Prep Show said that today is crucial for the markets. We discuss why he thinks today is so important then move to the big picture view of global financial markets. We have jobs data at the end of the week that will play directly into Fed expectations for the meeting at the end of the month. WE wrap up the call with quick comment on gold.

    The DemoRats will do anything to increase their voter base!

    As if flooding the country with ‘migrants’ to get more votes is not enough look what the Demorats are doing now:

    ‘It just really ethically scares me’: Caution urged as scientists look to create human-monkey chimeras

    Now you know the DemoRats will demand that these monkey people be given the vote.

      Speaking of DemoRats, here’s a (free) book that they should be forced to read:

        I tell you Matthew, the Demorats will stop at nothing. They’ve got people in Mexico and Central America doing all they can to get people into this country. And it’s not like they are trying to hide it. Hell Butto O’Dorke is campaigning there for crying out loud. And now there are Africans coming across the Mexican border. How the hell did they get to Mexico?

        And in Commiefornia Governor Gabby Nuisance is invoking the Obammy fine so those who refuse to be raped by the insurance mafia will be fined and the money used to fund free health care for illegal aliens. But you can bet every Commie Demonrat on those debate stages want the same thing.

        Trump is the last Republican President we will see in our lifetimes. The DemoNRats will turn the country into Commiefornia where every statewide office is held by a DemoNRat and both houses have super-majority DemoNRats. It is a one party state.

          I don’t understand why the ha-hockey sticks Trump doesn’t go after Soros and his “tax-free” organizations……the people that are funding the death of the US via Marxist greed.

            It’s not part of the script, that’s why. Every republican president of the last 75 years (at least) has been controlled opposition.

            Speaking of controlled opposition, I still have not come across a single good argument for the NRA’s endorsement of globalist (D) Bill Richardson instead of Ron Paul during the 2012 presidential campaign. And what’s one to make of the fact that all the other Rs weren’t good enough?

    It takes time to unravel the tentacles that the swamp had a grip on the US. The events of 1860 to now are deep rooted. Soros is/was a big player, but also is going to loose, bigly.

    The script has changed. You’ll see.

    Judy Shelton is author of the 1998 book Money Meltdown; and previously she had concluded that “Central bankers, and their defenders, have proven less than omniscient.”

    So why does Trump want Shelton on the board? Simple: she previously said that if appointed, she would lower interest rates to 0% in one to two years. That’s all markets had to known and following the news that Shelton is being nominated to the Fed board, gold spiked $10 from $1,425 to $1,435 in minutes, as Trump’s push for ZIRP (and soon after, NIRP) just took on an added urgency.

    The fed rate is only the ‘overnight lending rate between banks’.
    The prime lending rate to consumers and business is actually what matters. Also, the treasury yeilds paying a decent return matters to the economic flow.

    Here’s a recent tweet from the Meistro.
    I am pleased to announce that it is my intention to nominate Judy Shelton, Ph. D., U.S. Executive Dir, European Bank of Reconstruction & Development to be on the board of the Federal Reserve….

    ZIRP works when there is QE, for the bankers.
    There won’t be anymore QE. guaranteed.

        Why does this matter? Because as David Rosenberg pointed out, “the small business sector leads the cycle and employment here has plunged 61k in the past two months.” Adding that he hasn’t “seen this in over 9 years”, the Gluskin-Sheff economist notes that he saw that “same decline in Feb-March of 2008 when the consensus was busy calling for a soft landing. This isn’t a repeat of 2016 by any stretch.”

    Interesting……..Housing slow down….
    John Burns Real Estate Consulting, finds that a nationwide slowdown in residential housing markets has hit the Northern California tech epicenter particularly hard. San Jose, San Francisco and Seattle saw net resale deceleration (meaning the change in year-over-year price growth this year compared to last) in home prices of 26%, 15% and 13% respectively, in May.
