NFP :: What to watch for ?

  • U.S. economy added 533,000 jobs during the first three months of the year

What do we need to analyse ?

-To keep pace, job creation would need to accelerate in April
-Watch which sectors of the economy are adding jobs.
-Flirting with Full Employment
-Average hourly earnings
-The participation rate … its been a bit of a puzzle
Note:
After NFP we will get another risk of a gap open on Sunday/Monday ( 7 May )

First quarter’s gross domestic product figures for the United States and they’re not looking good

We have the first quarter’s gross domestic product figures for the United States and they’re not looking good. On an annualised basis that growth was only 0.7%, well down from the 2.1% of the preceding quarter. And to be honest about this it just doesn’t sound right. Or perhaps to give it the correct amount of seriousness, it doesn’t taste right.

For investors, the key to 2017 will not be Brexit, nor the French elections but rather USA bond yields. If the 10-year yield breaches 3pc we would expect major dislocations in many markets and a huge repricing of assets across the globe.

All investment decisions must be re-evaluated as the Trump era dawns

If Trump commits to introducing positive changes such as cutting taxes and boosting infrastructure spending, then it will be “happy days” again for investors

What did portfolio managers said about Trump area?

  1. There are two spectacularly different scenarios for stocks under the new president, depending on which Trump shows up at the Oval Office, according to legendary investor Jim Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings.
  2. “For better or worse, President Trump has become a reality,” said Brian Belski, chief investment strategist at BMO Capital Markets, in a note.
  3. “The last few weeks have perhaps given us a prologue for what to expect, but now the conversation changes from ‘What will he do?’ to ‘What is he doing?’,” wrote Andrew Adams, an analyst at Raymond James, in a note to clients.
  4. Inflows into equities have dwindled to $1.7 billion this week from $8.1 billion in the previous week, according to data from Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

 

Much about President Donald Trump’s policies are yet shrouded in mystery but there is one thing that Wall Street appears to be certain of — nothing will be the same.
