Analyzing the Impact of Job Trends on Inflation and Interest Rates

March 12, 2024

In this Protect Your Assets Market Briefing, David Hollander, aka The Sandman, dives into the recent jobs data that paints a complex picture of the current US labor market. Despite a surprising uptick in February’s employment numbers with 275,000 new jobs, a significant revision to January’s figures and a rising jobless rate highlight a slowing labor market. This slowdown, coupled with a dip in hourly wages, suggests a cooling period for inflation, potentially easing recent concerns. The Sandman also examines the ISM manufacturing and services employment indexes, both of which indicate contraction in their respective sectors for February. These movements signal a shift that could lead the Federal Reserve to adjust interest rates later this year. Join us as we unpack what these labor market trends mean for inflation, the economy, and your financial planning.
