    Wall St rises after jobs data; debt default averted

    Jun 02, 2023

    “U.S. stock indexes rose on Friday after a moderation in wage growth in May boosted bets that the Federal Reserve will skip raising interest rates this month, while investors cheered the country averting a catastrophic debt default.”

    “The tech-heavy Nasdaq index touched its highest intraday level in over 13 months and headed for its sixth straight week of gains, its best streak since January 2020.”

    “The Labor Department’s closely watched employment report showed unemployment rate at 3.7% in May against a forecast of 3.5%, while average hourly earnings were at 0.3%, down from 0.4% in April, highlighting a cooling in wage inflation. Non-farm payrolls increased by 339,000 jobs vs. expectations of 190,000 additions.”

    “This is a reflection of a labor market that, while still robust, is softening gently, not rapidly. That’s exactly what the Fed would like to see,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B Riley Wealth in New York.

They also have a habit of falling out of love, just as something is bottoming. As a contrarian, I like to pay attention to these emotions.”
